LUBOMYR MELNYK IN CONCERT ~ Continuous Music For The Summer Solstice

LUBOMYR MELNYK IN CONCERT ~ Continuous Music For The Summer Solstice

Sony Clas­sics and Erased Tapes record­ing artist, Lubomyr Mel­nyk is one of the great liv­ing musi­cians and com­posers. He has even cre­at­ed a new genre called Con­tin­u­ous Music. Con­sid­ered to be the world’s fastest pianist, in 1985, he set two world records, doc­u­ment­ed on film and with full audio, at the Sig­tu­na Stif­telsen in Swe­den. He sus­tained speeds of over 19.5 notes per sec­ond in each hand, and played between 13 and 14 notes per sec­ond for one full hour. His amaz­ing speed is inten­tion­al­ly devel­oped and con­scious­ly used to cre­ate har­mon­ic over­tones and under­tones which are blend­ed into the melod­ic struc­ture of his mon­u­men­tal com­po­si­tions, some of which can last over an hour of non-stop play­ing. Yet the pow­er and enor­mi­ty of some of these works is bal­anced by the del­i­ca­cy and beau­ty of his more med­i­ta­tive pieces. Each con­cert is unique, but the thing that has been con­sis­tent, is how he has stunned audi­ences around the world with his stu­pen­dous, almost oth­er world­ly per­for­mances. Lubomyr Mel­nyk’s play­ing at the 2017 Win­nipeg New Music Fes­ti­val com­plete­ly elec­tri­fied the crowd. His two sub­se­quent sold out con­certs at ClearLight­Sound were unfor­get­table musi­cal expe­ri­ences for all atten­dees. In this rare return per­for­mance, the Mae­stro will once again offer his audi­ence a win­dow into unheard of new musi­cal dimen­sions. Lubomyr Mel­nyk has been called The Prophet Of The Piano, and the way in which he takes this clas­si­cal instru­ment to a total­ly dif­fer­ent lev­el, mak­ing it into the voice of some­thing tran­scen­dent, seems to sug­gest that this title is true. Don’t miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expe­ri­ence the mag­ic of a true genius.
