three solo pieces
Comprised of three balanced examples of his Continuous Music technique on solo piano, 'Three Solo Pieces' serves as perhaps the best introduction the Ukrainian-Canadian composer Lubomyr Melnyk yet available.
'Marginal Invitation' is a subdued work with a deeply rooted melodic sensibility that is rich in overtones, while 'Corrosions on the Surface of Life' exhibits a dissonant fury of patterned note play. The final, side-length meditation 'Cloud Passade No. 3' is a chordal work in free-time which functions equally well as furniture music & a meditative exploration of pure light. Lubomyr Melnyk has successfully risen from obscurity & emerged as a welcome new entry in the history of contemporary classical music, as well as a vital performer for the 21st Century.
