Writings by Serge Kozlovsky / http://sergekozlovsky.com
We all live here in this world
Like sparks for divine creation

With the first chords of this beautiful music you can easily begin an exciting journey to the unknown faraway worlds. And the harmonious keyboard passages gently lead you along the way.

I’ve began the narrative about the new album “Paradise Painting” of Uwe Gronau with these words not accidently because his melodies are truly cinematic and full of visual images. Sometimes they are very gentle like on composition “Paradise Painting”, sometimes they are sharp with strong rock guitar parts like on “Prophecy”, sometimes – like a pop synthetic song on “Sounds Like a Smell”. The music of Uwe Gronau is very changeful but it is always producing an impression. Gentle saxophone, psychedelic guitar and keyboards on “A Passion Play” like from Pink Floyd’s albums just will reinforce your impression. The more you listen to these compositions, the more and more they are perceived as a single whole, and you look forward to what will happen next.

The main feature of the music of Uwe Gronau is that you will definitely want to find yourself in the paradise which this wonderful artist paints, because his paradise is full of life and creativity. This is not the lifeless land and not the end of your path. This is the continuation of interesting and endless travel. You just need to feel the divine seed into the depths of your soul and it is easy with the passionate music of Uwe Gronau. And you are able to find your own paradise, and it won’t be a particular land in the distance but the something inside your own essence…

But let’s return to the music of the album “Paradise Painting”. Uwe Gronau is a brilliant artist. All compositions of his newest album are perfectly arranged. In the whole, lightness and easiness of the artist’s performance captivate the listener. Uwe Gronau masterfully uses various ethnic influences in his music. For example, the Spanish flamenco motifs are clearly heard in the composition “Teguise”

The artist doesn’t fear to experiment with various music styles in his creative work. The composition “Two Worlds” is like a dialogue between ethnic and new age from one side and rock music from the other. I’d like also, to mention wonderful sound design of the “Paradise Painting”. You will undoubtedly want to return to this music time and again.

“Paradise Painting” ends with a very powerful composition “End of a Concert” with strong drum bits which sound like a perfect coda for the new album of Uwe Gronau.
I’d like only add a few words about this interesting project. It is filled with unexpected moments, as life itself. And this makes “Paradise Painting” really memorable.

Listen to this music. I am sure it will bring you a new creative impulse.

GERMAN KEYBOARDIST UWE GRONAU PUSHES NEW AGE MUSIC TOWARD PROG-ROCK
When it comes to exciting, progressive instrumental music, it does not get any better than the sounds created by German keyboardist Uwe Gronau (pronounced ooo-vuh grow-now), and he proves it again with his latest album, PARADISE PAINTING. He utilizes several of his unique trademark synthesizer sounds plus gorgeous piano and Hammond B-3 organ playing. This album, possibly the most upbeat and energetic solo recording he has ever put out, somehow makes the connection between ensemble new age and gentle-progressive-rock. He composes strong, out-of-the-ordinary melodies which he fills out with interesting arrangements and production. Besides his noteworthy piano and synth playing, he also includes the occasional guitar, drums, organ, trumpet, saxophone, bass and didgeridoo drone flute.

Although he started as a pop and rock musician, his solo recordings for the past decade or more have been strongly accepted in the new age music marketplace. It is always a pleasure to hear in what direction he will push the new age music envelope next. Some of his early inspirations were prog-rock keyboardists such as Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman and Patrick Moraz, and those influences can be heard here (although toned-down a bit for his new age audience). Regardless, this instrumental music is exciting and dramatic. PARADISE PAINTING is a must-hear recording.
