Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian pianist who has recently hooked up with Peter Broderick and Nils Frahm to create this wonderful record. Opener ‘Pockets of Light’ just stuns. The circular rolling piano notes are exquisitely beautiful, at the time of writing the track is in its fourteenth minute and I am still enthralled. Broderick adds very simple violin, but its the appearance of his voice that takes the music to another level, it reminds me of Richard Youngs’s ‘Sapphie’ in its stretched out elegance or Paddy McAlloon’s remarkable ‘Sleeping Rough’ where a familiar voice appears late into an instrumental piece. Fans of Arvo Part are going to wallow in this.

The solo track ‘The Six Day Moment’ exemplifies the intricate piano playing but it’s the collaborative pieces that really excel. ‘A Warmer Place’ slowly builds with the gorgeously undulating piano joined by simple violin notes which after eight or so minutes play a more staccato rhythm. It’s beautifully done. ‘Nighttrail From The Sun’ veers from the trodden path of the previous pieces with what sounds like an electric piano flickering away, joined by guitar drones and some picked acoustic guitar, the juddering rhythms have a Philip Glass-like quality. The final Broderick-led ‘Le Miroir D’armour’ is downbeat and exquisitely beautiful, the aching violin joined by simple beautiful piano chords. Recommended.
