Reviewed by Enlightened Piano Radio
Wonder is the sixth release of composer/pianist Michael Logozar. The cover artwork is designed by Michael and gives the listener the impression of another magical album by a talented artist. As a pianist, Michael’s ability to express emotiveness at the keys is exceptional and his ear for melody never disappoints any musical palette. The cover conveys the expression of magical wonder drifting into music dreamland and this charm is genuinely reflected in each solo piano piece. The album exudes sweetness and wonder at the piano that perhaps parallels the personal event of utter happiness found in both family and daily life.

Wonder opens with the title track of the same name. This piece leaves the listener with a spinning melody of awe and expectation of further musical bliss. Arriving is the next piece with a sweet poignant melody and gentle touch this artist expresses so eloquently with piano keys. This delightful melody begins in the upper register which captured my attention immediately. Love it. The First Drop of Rain is my next favorite on this album. The song at the beginning gives the impression of a gentle rain in nature building to a heavier rain in the middle then returning to more gentler beginning of a perfect storm. I could fully imagine the building of a rainstorm depicting natures ebb and flow in perfect melodic blend.

Two Hearts was my next favorite. The piece melodically depicts the sweetness and innocence of discovered love binding two hearts together for eternity. Simply beautiful and one of my favorites on the album. Dreamland gives the impressions of a fuller melodic experience into the land of unexplored mysteries of dreams and hopes. Found this piece to be brighter in melody and presentation. The song leads the listener into a lyrical utopia, I absolutely love this one!!!

Dance of the Woodlands is my next favorite! This dreamy piece adds to the ambience of conveyed mystery and discovered enjoyment. The melody borders between whimsical and captivating, simply engaging. It became another favorite for me on the album. Love it! Unfolding a Mystery continues the listener on the mysterious and enchanting musical journey that is contained in Wonder by this skilled composer and musician. The Little Music Box is an angelic gem depicting the magic of childhood in musical theme. As a child, I collected music boxes so this piece reminds me of those treasured memories. The melody is both gentle and mesmerizing at this hands of a brilliant artist. The Little Music Box became my favorite on the album with its poignant reflection of musical reminiscence.

Michael beautifully captured in musical theme the enchantment and mysteries that life offers in this stunning album! Wonder is wonderfully written and precisely presented in both form and musicianship. Michael Logozar is one of my favorite musicians and composers, deservedly so. Therefore, I highly recommend this album.

A new album from Michael Logozar is always a treat, and "Wonder" is no exception! From the gorgeous cover artwork to the fifteen soulful piano solos, Logozar has once again outdone himself! His sixth release since 2008, Logozar’s albums have consistently been on my annual Favorites Lists, and there is a very good chance this one will be, too. Michael and his wife recently welcomed a baby into their family, and I assume that that event inspired at least a fair amount of the music. Logozar has always been exceptionally good at expressing a wide variety of emotions in his music, but this album has a sweetness and innocence running through it that is especially nice. He told me that the writing came together very quickly over the course of a week in July. Some of these are new songs and some were completed from ideas he had recorded on his phone over the past year. He says that the album wasn’t intentionally written directly around a theme, but that he found while listening to the music that there is wonder, mystery and imagination captured in the songs. I agree, and while the music makes a lovely backdrop for any number of activities, you owe it to yourself to listen to it without too many distractions to fully absorb the “wonder” of this album. You will notice below that I didn’t mention any specific favorites - I like them all!

"Wonder" begins with the title track, a peaceful yet swirling piece that does a marvelous job of expressing that sense of awe that makes your head spin a bit as you drink it in. I’m hooked already! “Arriving” begins as a delicate whisper in the upper registers of the piano and evolves into a fuller sound without ever disturbing the fragile quality of the piece. In “The First Drop of Rain,” Logozar makes great use of the dampers to create a reverb effect that suggests openness and possibly a quiet pause in nature. It builds to a much bigger middle section that could represent heavy rain, and then returns to the stillness of the opening passages. “Two Hearts” expresses a tenderness and heartfelt love that are much too uncommon in this crazy time we’re living - breath-taking! “Meandering” is warm, relaxed and very contented. “Dreamland” soothes yet conveys a touch of mystery. “Sweet Discovery” beautifully expresses that magical wonder of seeing everything as new. Lighthearted and gently energetic, it softly fades out at the end. In “Through the Fog,” Logozar again uses the dampers to create an atmospheric feeling, this time the stillness and soft focus of the fog (I know it well!!!) - another “wonder”! “Unfolding a Mystery” seems to express the fun and “wonder” of discovery greeted with the gentle sweetness and innocence of a child’s happy smile. “Distant Echoes” again makes great use of the dampers to create an echo-y effect that is haunting and mysterious. “Treasured Moments” reflects on the heartwarming moments in life and brings this “wonder-ful” album to a close.

"Wonder" is a musical highlight in a year of many exceptionally good albums. Beautifully expressive and emotionally resonant, I give it my highest recommendation.

WONDERful and Delightful!!
Wonder is the new album by Michael Logozar. And it is filled with wonder, delight and beauty. I first discovered this composer through his previous album, Shine, and was taken aback by the beauty of his pieces. In Wonder, Logozar has seamlessly woven together an album of pieces that is like fine lace; they are delicate, light, airy and refined. Although I loved all fifteen piano solos, my favorites were the title track, “Wonder” with it’s beautiful left-hand pattern that wove everything together, “Arriving”, which is delicate, light and blissful, “A Breath of Fresh Air”, exactly that, a breath of air, light, airy and beautiful, “Delighted”, reminding me of taking a walk in the forest, noticing the beauty that surrounds, and “Treasure Moments”, a very flowing and lyrical piece that could be a love song if set to words or a soundtrack to movie. Wonder is just that, a wonder. I can’t recommend this album highly enough. If you love contemporary or New Age solo piano, this album is a ‘must’ for your music library. If you don’t, well, take a listen anyway, you just may be surprised.
