ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blending Americana, contemporary and classical textures, Arthur Dobrucki reaches the heart of music through his solo piano works. On this third Azure Hills Music release, the songs explore themes of reflection, longing, hope, and ecstasy.

Arthur Dobrucki developed his craft as a pianist with Spanish concert pianist Mariblanca de Pujadas who herself studied with Sergei Tarnowsky (teacher of Vladimir Horowitz) and Adele Marcus (pupil of Josef Lhevinne and Artur Schnabel). As a composer, he has developed a unique style that follows in the footsteps of classical composers while integrating contemporary influences and improvisation within his works.

His keyboard work has been heard for over 20 years in Southern California. His performances have ranged from solo piano and chamber music classical performances, to musical theater including the Magnificant Moorpark Melodrama and Vaudeville Company, and over 500 performances in the 1980s with the rock band Dorian which was a local fixture on the Los Angeles club scene. Music from his prior two recordings, "The Darkness and the Light" and "Six Dance Episodes" have been featured on radio stations internationally as well as Whisperings Solo Piano Radio.

Today, Arthur Dobrucki is resident pianist and organist at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Simi Valley, California and continues to be active writing new works for solo piano.

From MainlyPiano
“All You Need” is pianist/composer Arthur Dobrucki’s third recording of original solo piano music and again demonstrates his versatility and virtuosity as a composer and pianist as well as his deep roots in classical music. Leaning a bit more toward Americana and new age stylings, the nine tracks also reflect influences from blues, folk, pop, gospel, musical theater, and jazz. Active in the Southern California music community for more than twenty years, Dobrucki melds his diverse musical experiences into a unique and personal musical voice.

“All You Need” begins with “Bring It Back,” a light, warm piece that is tinged with mystery. Strongly melodic and flowing, it is a very promising start! The title track follows, and is a graceful, passionate ballad that evokes visions of a slow, fluid dance. “Rise Again” has its roots in gospel music, and is both reverent and jubilant. “Where You Lead” is joyful and upbeat with a swirling, infectious energy. “Wanting You” is less structured, more ambient, and absolutely gorgeous. Passionate and emotional, this music seems to come from the depths of the soul - definitely a favorite! The highlight of the album is the 16 1/2 minute “Communication,” a piece that I would guess is an improvisation because of its flowing quality, freedom, and changing themes (which hold together wonderfully - this is no musical patchwork quilt). Although the tone is mostly quiet, there is an underlying energy that keeps the piece moving forward, making it interesting and compelling as it evolves. At about the 10-minute point, the tempo picks up and the piece becomes much bigger and bolder, developing an almost funky jazz rhythm before returning to its more gentle, soft-spoken voice. It’s a tour-de-force and well-worth the price of “admission” by itself. “Lighthouse Prayer” is a charming and simple gem - graceful and heartfelt.

“All You Need” is a richly rewarding musical experience and should help to bring Arthur Dobrucki the recognition he deserves. Check it out! Recommended!
