LUBOMYR MELNYK THREE SOLO PIECES LP VINYL NEW (US) 33RPM
1. Marginal Invitation
2. Corrosions on the Surface of Life
3. Cloud Passade No. 3
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. '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 that functions equally well as furniture music and a mystical exploration of pure light.
