Lubomyr Melnyk

— St George's
'Minimalism at its most lush and ornate'
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Lubomyr Melnyk is one of the most extraordinary pianists and composers of our day. He has been called The Prophet Of The Piano because of his life-long devotion to the instrument, and for his work in pushing the boundaries of what can be done with it. In the mid-1970s, while living in Paris, he created Continuous Music - a totally new language for the piano, one that requires amazing technical abilities that use the full natural voice of the piano. One can recognise immediately that this music is founded in the traditional Classical piano technique - with reminiscences of Liszt and Brahms - but it also introduced many influences from Eastern philosophy, as well as minimal music, combining these into a wonderful mixture of modern romantic harmonies and melodies.Using his extraordinary piano abilities to generate over 19.5 notes per second in each hand, he is the fastest pianist ever recorded. Since the early 1970s he has produced an astonishing oeuvre of more than 120 works, most for solo or double piano, and has blazed wholly new paths in contemporary music.
