I first heard Ralph's music on Whisperings (Live365) and everytime one of his pieces was played, I would come to the computer to see who on earth the composer was! It kept turning out to be Ralph Zurmuhle. I just fell in love with this music! Pure, pristine...elegant. I whole-heartedly recommend any of his 3 albums. All of them are simply beautiful. These pieces are wonderfully mature and seem to me full of an aware consciousness, a spiritual impulse. After one of his compositions comes to an end, I consistently find that I am left sitting in a place of quiet, inner stillness. Balance is everything and I think perhaps one thing I find so appealing (besides the elegance of the melodic lines) is Ralph's intuitive balancing of the right notes (in the right place!) with the requisite, echoing silence to create a perfect alchemy. ahhh! beautiful! It is wonderful to have these deep breaths written into the fabric of the notes.

I seldom write reviews, and when I do, it is because I find something to be particularly special.
Hope this review will encourage anyone to listen to, and collect, the music of this artist.
Sophie C.

I am just blown away by the quality of music that has been coming across my desk this year, and one of the best of the best is Ralph Zurmuhle's masterpiece, "Our Mother." Swiss-born and classically-trained, pianist/composer Zurmuhle now makes his home in Spain and also works in film and multimedia. An incredible pianist who understands the power of simplicity, Zurmuhle conveys a wide range of emotions in these nine tracks, allowing open spaces to be almost as expressive as the notes themselves. Most of the music is on the melancholy and introspective side, with some of it achingly beautiful. Although his music doesn't sound like other artists' music, I would put Ralph Zurmuhle in the same class of pianists as Michael Dulin, Robin Spielberg, David Lanz, and Michael Allen Harrison - artists who seem the most at home with their hands on a piano keyboard and who posses the playing skills to convey anything they wish to say in their music.

"Our Mother" begins with "Being There," a gentle, graceful piece that is intimate and almost conversational. The quiet spaces between many of the notes resonate with feeling. If you aren't hooked yet, try "The Wind At My Back," which is lively, carefree, and one of my favorites. I love the spirit and dancelike quality of the piece and hope it is released as sheet music at some point! "Hymn" is more stately, but is also very prayerful, poignant, and deeply personal. There are two version of the title track. One is digitally orchestrated and the second is solo piano - both are compellingly gorgeous. While I was in the listening process of reviewing this CD, "Our Mother" kept causing me to stop what I was doing and listen with full attention. The melody line is so simple, yet so powerful.

Ralph Zurmuhle's music is refined and sophisticated. His music is a tender expression of deeply meaningful moments of life; reflections of a sensitive, gentle spirit. His music creates peace, wonderment, and personal contemplation. His pieces make me pause and listen to them over and over stretching for that deeper place within where my soul and heaven meet. Highest recommendation!

If music can provide a sanctuary for you; if music can calm you mind; if music can heal you; and if music can help deconstruct you, you should buy this album. Some new age piano music lacks depth and the ability to transport, this is very, very much unlike those kinds.
