    MELNYK, LUBOMYR

    Concert-Requiem / -Islands-

    [engl] Limited All Analog Remastering Recording This is one my most beloved albums ... it always reminds me of the horror that occurred in my homeland, Ukraine, in 1933. And I am always thankful when I hear it. It is good to remember the suffering of other people ! Otherwise, life is not worth living..... This album came about in an interesting way .... there came to me a melody at some point that year ... I was not even at the piano .... a melody that I just began to sing ... When I played it on the piano for my friend, the artist Dmitri Farkavec, he right away loved it and suggested that it would be a great opening for a piece dedicated to the multi-millions of Ukrainians who suffered a terrible and deliberate extinction at the hands of the Russians who had invaded my country. As he said to me, "1983 is the 50 year commemoration of the Terror Famine --- it would be a good year to make this piece." And so it came to be ! "CONCERT-REQUIEM" is dedicated to the over seven million Ukrainians who were killed by the Forced Starvation of 1933 who watched in agony as Communist police destroyed grain as they and their children lay starving to death. This album also contains "ISLANDS" for solo piano --- a remarkable bass-oriented piece depicting enormous masses of mystical and murky islands moving through an imaginary sea.. It was inspired by and created for a dance performance by Windwitches of Stockholm. Original Release: 1984 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording

    Corollaries

    Alles im Klangfluss: Der ukrainische Klaviervirtuose setzt auf Obertöne. "Corollaries" nennt sich die erste Veröffentlichung des ukrainischen Pianisten Lubomyr Melnyk auf dem Label Erased Tapes. Der 1948 geborene Melnyk ist ein wahrer Pionier, der neue Pfade für zeitgenössische Musik erkundet. Er gilt als Wegbereiter der Continuous Piano Music, einer Klaviertechnik, die versucht, einen kontinuierlichen, ungebrochenen Klangfluss aufrecht zu erhalten. Seinen Fokus legt er hierbei ebenso stark auf den eigentlichen Klang des Klaviers wie auf die Harmonien und Melodien der Komposition. Rasante und komplexe Notenmuster machten Lubomyr zu einem der schnellsten Konzertpianisten der Welt. Mit seiner virtuosen Spielweise formt er Obertöne, die verschmelzen, kollidieren und in seltenen Momenten sogar neue Melodien entstehen lassen, und damit die Komposition jenseits ihrer ursprünglichen Form weiter gestalten. Das Album wurde von Peter Broderick produziert und aufgenommen in Berlin mit der Unterstützung von Nils Frahm und Martyn Heyne. Die Vinylausgabe hat einen Bonus-Track.

    The Lund - St.Petri Symphony

    [engl] " In 1978 I arrived for my first time to Sweden, to the town of Lund .. and there I met a remarkable man named Jean Sellem who ran a tiny gallery in the middle of the town, "The Galleri St.Petri: Dedicated To Modern Art and Thought "... and he was one of the few and first people who saw the greatness and beauty of Continuous Music .. and since I was a complete "unknown" at that time, I really needed his moral support ! --- and he created with me, the idea of a huge work for multiple pianos ... three pianos .. in stages ... and it became as he had envisioned ! and was first performed on a small upright piano in 1978 in his gallery, and the piece was called THE LUND.St.PETRI SYPMPHONY .. becuase it was so symphonic in grandeur (once the three pianos came together ...) The Lund - St. Petri Symphony, from 1979, is the second album from Lubomyr Melnyk and the first composition for double piano which he released. In this work, the early minimalist tendencies which played such a major part in the emergence of Continuous music, are very significant and clearly evident. This Double LP set sold out within 1 year of production, Only 1000 copies were made. Original Release: 1980 Limited All Analog Remastering Recording

    The Song of Galadriel

    [engl] "Reading Tolkein´s LORD OF THE RINGS saga was one of the greatest experiences of my life ... his amazing talent for words was mindboggling ... and the great topics he touched upon remain forever as the most important topics of life ... they are still most valid today .. and will be for all eternity. Everything he described through his magical words came to life before my eyes ! So it was most natural that he would inspire music within me ... music that I can not describe in words how it relates to the Saga .. but deep inside me, it all shines clear as a lamp-post on a dark street ... and it shines into my soul in many, many dimensions....." .... and on a technical note, this piece marked the first time I created Arpegge Melodies within Continuous Music !" In the ”Song of Galadriel” Lubomyr Melnyk has created one of the great epics of piano music in our century, a work of visionary character, filled with haunting and delicate melodies that evoke the mystical world of Tolkein's ”Lord Of The Rings”.
