- Lubomyr Melnyk
Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian pianiste extraordinare who has created an amazing new language for the piano.
Classically trained and greatly affected by the minimalist movement in the early 1970s, he has developed his own unique language for the piano, named after the principle of maintaining a continuous, unbroken stream of sound.
Lubomyr Melnyk is a true innovator, exploring new directions for contemporary music. Not only is he regarded as one of the world’s fastest concert pianists, his compositions also truly carry the listener to new realms. To witness one of his rare live performances is nothing short of a mind-opening experience.
Added to the fact that Lubomyr will perform in the beautifullly refurbished Purcell Room at Southbank Centre, and we have a very very special evening in store.
