Lubomyr Melnyk – The Song of Galadriel LP


In the ”Song of Galadriel”, Lubomyr Melnyk has created one of the great epics of piano music in our century, a work of visionary character, filled with haunting and delicate melodies that evoke the mystical world of Tolkien’s ”Lord Of The Rings”.   / Arthur Rankin

Reading Tolkien´s LORD OF THE RINGS saga was one of the greatest experiences of my life. His amazing talent for words was mind-boggling and the great topics he touched upon remain forever as the most important topics of life: they are still most valid today and will be for all eternity.  Everything he described through his magical words came to life before my eyes!  So it was most natural that he would inspire music within me, music that I cannot describe in words how it relates to the Saga, but deep inside me, it all shines clear as a lamp-post on a dark street, and it shines into my soul in many, many dimensions …  And on a technical note, this piece marked the first time I created Arpegge Melodies within Continuous Music. Lubomyr Melnyk
