Director Martin Dvořák

Stage concert of world fastest pianist. Crossover music-theatre project.

This interdisciplinary project aims to connect and celebrate the art mastership of a theatre and above all film director born in Brno, Petr Weigl, who wrote the history of film music theatre, in particular during the 70s and 80s.

The basic element of this project is the music of Lubomyr Melnyk, who built his distinctive music genre on a practical experience of an accompanying musician during modern dance classes, most notably in conjunction with Carolyn Carlson, choreographer at the Paris Opera. Melnyk is noted for continuous music, a piano technique based on extremely rapid notes and complex note-series, usually with the sustain pedal held down to generate overtones and sympathetic resonances. These overtones blend or clash according to harmonic changes. Most of his music is for piano, but he has also composed chamber and orchestral works.

Melnyk is also an holder of two world records: he sustained speeds of over 19.5 notes per second, and played between 13 and 14 notes per second for one full hour. In his domain he does not have a competitor and as a musician and artist gained broad international recognition. Lose yourself in the innovative sounds of Ukrainian composer and pianist, the pioneer of ‘Continuous Piano Music’. Not only regarded as one of the world’s fastest concert pianists, his compositions also carry listeners to new realms.
