eQuinox - CD/MP3

"25 years after the glory days of the solo piano genre sparked by artists like Keith Jarrett and George Winston, the solo piano album remains an elusive undertaking: very easy to do - very hard to do well.
Swiss pianist RALPH ZURMUHLE is one of those rare artists who does it sublimely well, with great sensitivity to touch, melody, and ambience. Listen and you will find yourself in the hands of a master."
:: Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space
"An equinox occurs twice a year, but a solo piano album like this, one filled with so much emotion, can touch your heart and play in your mind forever."
- Liz Doan, Music Design
"Fragile... powerful... a wonder that will penetrate deep in the listener. What beauty!" 5 stars!
Alejandro Clavijo, Reviews New Age
Ralph Zurmühle discovered his natural talent for the piano at a young age. He fostered it over decades of lessons and classical music studies. For the past twenty-five years his ability to convey the deepest emotions through his playing has been on display with his compositions for film, theater and multimedia. In 2005 he composed the score for several classical silent movies and performed the pieces during a series at the Valencian Institute of Modern Art in Spain. More recently his scores have been featured in numerous European feature films and documentaries including Norró, All Secrets and Harvest Moon as well as multimedia projects like L'horitzó and Shift of the Ages Collaborative.
