Maestro on “continuous” piano
Lubomir Melnik is one of the most outstanding pianists and composers of our time. He was called the Prophet of the Piano because of his lifelong commitment to the instrument and his work in pushing the boundaries of what could be done with it. In the mid-1970s, while living in Paris, he created “Continuous Music” – a totally new piano language that requires incredible technical skills that use the full natural voice of the piano. It is immediately recognizable that this music was based on the traditional classical piano technique – reminiscent of Liszt and Brahms – but also introduced many influences from Eastern philosophy as well as minimal music, combining them into a wonderful blend of modern romantic harmonies. and melodies.
Using his outstanding piano skills 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 incredible opus of more than 120 pieces, mostly for solo or double piano, and opened up entirely new avenues in contemporary music.
