Lubomyr Melnyk is considered to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest pianist in the world. Yet this speed is specifically used to generate the entirely new genre of piano music that Maestro Melnyk has created, called Continuous Music. By playing at super speeds, previously unknown regions of sonic dimensionality are opened up in the instrument, in which the harmonics, overtones and undertones are incorporated into the melodic structure of the composition. The experience of hearing this new level of sound intelligence is utterly unique, transformative and essential.
Deborah Judith's musical genius is almost impossible to grasp. Ms. Judith creates spontaneous masterpieces out of nothing. The pieces she plays are not rehearsed, nor have they ever been played before the moment of the performance. Each offering is dedicated to the conscious healing, rebalancing and harmony of all listeners. What is astonishing is that technically and musically, these compositions are nearly perfect - some of which flow and evolve over the course of an hour or more.
To hear either of these master musicians is a gift. To hear both Deborah Judith and Lubomyr Melnyk in concert together, is quite simply speaking, transcendent.
Recorded live at ClearLightSound, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Deborah Judith and Lubomyr Melnyk performed on a Kawai CA-40, 6'1" grand piano.
