ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hopefully, in this lifetime, you’ve had the good fortune to experience great love, love that is simply beyond words. At such a time, we often turn to music, art or poetry to share the depths of our devotion, as I have with My Beloved. I hope you’ll enjoy some of the inspirations behind the music...
In Beloved, I hope you’ll find an endearing reminder of your own beloved. Devotion is the piece I created to tell my wife, Jan, “I love you more than anything. Period.” Our promises to one another are everything; Chanson is my way of saying “I promised to dance with you in Paris one day, and I’ll never forget.” And while every lifelong love story has painful nights of worry and prayer, Through The Night reminds us what a comfort it is to have your beloved at your side. Walking Joy is a tribute to Jan’s happy, peaceful spirit, a sweet nickname bestowed upon her by my friend and fellow artist, David Nevue. If I could draw a map to her heart, it would be a most romantic treasure map; she is My Treasure. I remember a time when I sat on the balcony, entranced, watching her walk on the beach in the moonlight and a melody came to me...it is captured as She Walks In Beauty. Certainly the greatest miracle of love is that Two Hearts beat as one, but Before There Was You is a time that I can’t remember, and I don’t want to. As Long As We’re Together celebrates the happiness Jan brings to my life every day. In the quiet times, When I Think Of You conveys ---- We are blessed that our true love brings a passion, a Rhapsody, that never diminishes, never ends...

From MainlyPiano
Michael Dulin wears his heart on his musical sleeve on his most romantic and possibly most personal album to date, "My Beloved." One of the most incredible pianists on the planet, Dulin's original music is graceful and elegant with his classical roots in clear evidence. Dulin began his musical career in the classical realm, competing at an international level. He started composing music in about 2003 and has become one of the most beloved and admired pianist/composers in the contemporary instrumental music field. Dulin’s music usually falls into the new age category because it doesn’t easily fit into any one genre. More classical than anything else, there are also strong jazz influences, but it is Dulin’s amazing technique coupled with his heart-tugging sensitivity and sophisticated touch that put him into a genre all his own. Something of a pianist’s pianist, who hasn’t drooled over those magical fingers flying effortlessly over the piano keys, expressing anything and everything he chooses? On some of his previous releases, Dulin has used keyboards in addition to his Steinway, but this album is pure solo piano heaven!

"My Beloved" begins with “Beloved,” a sweet love song that begins with a simple but very tender melody that evolves into a breathtaking showcase for Dulin’s expressive (and very impressive!) playing. “Devotion” was composed as a way for Dulin to tell his wife that he loves her more than anything. Lyrical and graceful, it is not as complex as some of the pieces, but comes straight from the heart. “Chanson” is a slow, romantic waltz that accompanies a promise to dance together in Paris someday. “Through The Night” is a favorite. The gentle flow of the piece is deeply introspective and feels very free and in the moment. “Walking Joy” is light and carefree, played at an easy pace that is relaxed and happy. “My Treasure” is another favorite. More than a bit Chopin-esque, the simple melody flows effortlessly over the passionate underpinnings of the piece - gorgeous! “As Long As We’re Together” conveys a strong sense of contentment and optimism without being sugar-coated. The regular pulse of the left hand contrasts with the free-flowing right, making this a fascinating piece on several levels. “When I Think Of You” is a magical love song that reminds me a bit of Liszt - so beautiful! “Rhapsody” ends the album on a playful note that always makes me smile - I can’t wait to play this one!

With "My Beloved," Michael Dulin proves once again that he’s “The Man” when it comes to the piano! Let this wonderful music transport your heart to a world of love and devotion where all things are possible. Sure to be a Favorite for 2015, I give "My Beloved" my highest recommendation.

My Beloved...Worth the Wait
If you've been wanting a solo piano album by Michael Dulin, then My Beloved is the one to buy. It is sweet to know that he was inspired by his love for his wife, we should all be so lucky. The music is bordering on neo-classical, but with touches of jazz and contemporary piano enough to keep it varied and interesting…great for Valentine’s Day, but also very listenable year ‘round. Romantic solo piano never sounded so good!
