ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ronald Van Deurzen is a pianist and soundtrack composer from The Netherlands, living in Sweden. Ronald has been working for the game and film industry as composer. "Imaginations" is Ronald Van Deurzen's New Age album, blending soothing solo piano with orchestral accompaniment, soundscapes and Celtic influences.

"Imaginations" is an album of exploration and relaxation. Although being mainly piano-driven New Age, "Imaginations" borrows elements from other genres like orchestral film-score, jazz, Celtic and Nordic folk-music. The songs have been composed throughout the years of Ron's journey while immigrating and integrating into the Scandinavian country of Sweden. A country of forests, lakes, frost, snow and ethereal sunrises. The album reflects this journey of transformation, ambition, observation, self-reflection and concurrently tries to communicate the staggering beauty that can be experienced in this far northern area of the world. It speaks to the listener in images of the imagination.

An incredible discovery!
I am very surprised by this album! If you spend enough time searching for new sources of inspiration and artists with a specific talent for achieving a superior introspective way of creating music then "Imaginations" will be one of those precious albums ready to become a treasure to you.

An interesting aspect of this album is that the genre, the influences, the new age piano sound and even the name of the songs are just a frame for something more spectacular which is a unique artistic footprint called "Ron". It is amazing how intimate the compositions are. I consider that creating this sort of music and expose oneself in such a fragile way requires a lot of courage from the musician. I am very grateful that Mister Van Deurzen chose to create this album and make his own universe available for the public; it is as gentle and kind as his music is.

Another important fact about "Imaginations" is that as a New Age record it does deliver inspiration and relaxation, but it also includes a more advanced musical approach at times that reminded me of Lyle Mays album "Solo: Improvisations for Expanded Piano", more related to moods and thoughts. The idea of including a mind of its own on the album makes it special on my New Age collection.

I am very prone towards the Ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" inscribed in the Temple of Apollo in Delphi, and for some reason I can relate Ron's music to this line of thinking. The main reason for acknowledging this is that even the structure of the album and how the songs are ordered gives me an idea of the good criteria of the musician, it is perfectly arranged. Criteria is important to me when qualifying a piece of art because having a good criteria enables the artist to measure carefully the balance of ingredients needed in order to create a good recipe; and that is exactly what Ron has done: a good mix of beautiful piano, flutes, ambience sounds and melodies in a very personal and pleasant way for the listener.

Highly Recommended!
