Ukrainian Lubomyr Melnyk (class of 1948) was called “the prophet of the piano” but also “the fastest pianist in the world” and is considered the originator of continuous music: a personal piano language that today boasts many heirs, including Nils Frahm. His last album Fallen Treescelebrates his seventieth birthday and sees the musician composing and interpreting vibrant and energetic pieces.
A different approach to the music of American composer Craig Leon, who is known for launching, among others, the Ramones and Blondie and for his contribution to the evolution of punk and new wave. The master of electronic music returns today with his immersive and hypnotic loops: between analog and digital sound, between global folklore and futuristic landscapes.
