"Zurmühle's music explores the sonority of the piano masterfully and reaches a technical and artistic dimension only achievable by the finest contemporary piano works." Yamaha Spain
Ralph Zurmühle, Swiss composer and pianist, discovered his natural ability for the piano at the age of five. He fostered his talent over decades with jazz and classical music training in Zurich and Liechtenstein. Ralph currently resides in the province of Barcelona and is a Yamaha Artist (Spain).
Imbued with subtle changes of tempo and nuance and crossing various musical genres, Zurmühle’s compositions maintain the intuitive feeling of improvised music. With great sensitivity to touch, he combines fluidity and freedom with refinement and development; resulting in graceful melodies, sublime sound textures and introspective ambiences. Ralph's 6 CDs, composed in the genre of contemporary post-classical piano, have been met with international critical acclaim and received multiple nominations and awards. His fourth album eQuinox is produced by Valley Entertainment (Hearts of Space Records), New York.
For the past 30 years he has been offering solo piano concerts in Europe and the United States, performing mostly his own compositions. Since 1985 he has scored music for film, documentaries, television programs, theater and multimedia productions.
