Lubomyr Melnyk to perform at Salon İKSV
Lubomyr Melnyk is set to play tonight at Salon İKSV. The Canadian composer and pianist pioneered “continuous music,” which requires a totally new technique of piano-playing based on extremely rapid notes and note-series that create a “tapestry of sound,” usually with the sustain pedal held down to generate overtones and sympathetic resonances.
The technique of mastering his complex note patterns and speeds makes his music difficult for the normal pianist. Melnyk’s personal sense of harmony and melodic flow often create a somber, stately effect. He writes mostly for the piano although he also has several chamber and orchestral works. Tickets cost 30 Turkish Liras, while discount student tickets are 20 liras.
Address: Nejat Eczacıbaşı Binası, Sadi Konuralp Cad. No. 5, Şişhane, Beyoğlu
