It may sound like something from times past – romantically-inspired music full of tenderness and longing dedicated to one’s true love – yet My Beloved proves that love’s inspiration is as timeless and relevant as ever. Today, internationally-renowned pianist and composer Michael Dulin celebrates the release of his latest work, My Beloved, an intensely personal solo piano album dedicated to his wife, Jan.My Beloved – A Solo Piano Love Story is a beautifully melodic and passionate testament to enduring love, blending classic and contemporary influences to create a 12-song collection that critics are saying “is like a long and passionate love letter” that “makes every time you listen to it feel like Valentine’s Day.” Fittingly, the album’s six-panel digipak is filled with insightful liner notes, romantic quotes by Ruben Dario, Plato, and E.E. Cummings, complemented by elegant images and deep red graphics. To tie in with Valentine’s Day 2015, a special gift-with-purchase, a set of contemporary glass coasters, available through February 14th with each physical CD purchase from the website.Dulin, a Juilliard-trained pianist who has competed on the international level, effortlessly crosses genres from classical to jazz to new age, as exhibited on previous albums like Timeless, Atmospheres, and Follow the River. While My Beloved may deliver touches of Neo-Classical, Jazz and New Age sounds, one of today’s leading piano music reviewers, Kathy Parsons, avoids categorization calling it, simply, “pure solo piano heaven” and adding “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.”
“This is my most personal album to date. I hope you’ll be able to live your own love story through My Beloved,” Dulin says, “and that the music will inspire you to think about the true meaning of love and devotion in your life.”
Equity Digital Music of Birmingham, AL, is releasing the album, which will be available for sale both physically and digitally on all major online music stores, and on the artist’s own website atwww.michaeldulin.com.
