A Ukrainian piano prophet and Hindustani harpsichord

Verity Sharp presents new music by Ukrainian ‘prophet of the piano’ Lubomyr Melnyk.

Lubomyr Melnyk’s continuous, cascading style of composing revels in the rich harmonic possibilities of the piano. Verity previews the ‘prophet of the piano’s’ new album released to mark his 70th birthday.

More new music comes courtesy of prolific Spanish producer and composer Raül Refree, and Yama Warashi, the Bristol based brainchild of Japanese artist and musician Yoshino Shigihara.

Elsewhere on the programme, Sarah Angliss evokes a London tree canopy using recorder and electronics, and Hindustani music meets the harpsichord in William Hamilton Bird’s 18th century transcriptions of traditional Indian music.

Produced by Freya Hellier for Reduced Listening.
