Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian composer and pianist who has pioneered Continuous Piano Music. Classically trained and influenced 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.
A true innovator, his mission is to explore new directions for contemporary music. Not only is he regarded as one of the world’s fastest concert pianists, but 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.
