Music for piano and string orchestra.
Debussy's somewhat overplayed but immortal genius masterpiece, Clair de Lune.
Inspired by Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte.
Music Directed by Shani Arshad Produced by Strings. ‘Maula-e-Kull’, is a testament that less is more and no person more apt to recite this than the maestro, Abida Parveen. With minimal production by music director Shani Arshad and lyrics that pierce through the soul, penned by Sabir Zafar – the idea behind the composition was to have Abida sing this heartfelt prayer without a rhythm or tempo placing the expressivity of her vocal prowess at the forefront. Using the classical raag played on the Sarod and a sound bed of percussions, Abida enthralls the listener with her vocals that are strikingly immersive and instantly captivating. The track builds up to ‘Haidari-am’ – the poetry of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar – a part that was suggested during the jam session and composed by Abida Parveen. The segment opens with a bass line and transforms into a dhamaal using the dhol as a backbone to create the rhythms played at shrines utilizing the western instruments and a pop/rock feel. #CokeStudio9

Now he returns with a 24-minute mini album entitled 'Evertina'. Featuring three newly composed solo piano pieces, the long-form EP showcases another side to Lubomyr Melnyk – his more gentle and melodic work. In 2012 Lubomyr's ears began to notice the remarkable tonal depth of upright pianos. To Lubomyr the upright piano sound is like a natural forest of microcosmic colours. 'Evertina' and 'Awaiting' were created on a middle-aged upright piano at a friend's home in New York in October 2012 – just before Hurricane Sandy hit the city. Some children were listening to Lubomyr as he played in a hotel lobby in Cologne and 'Butterfly' is the piece that he made for them. It was recorded on a battered grand piano somewhere in Switzerland in late 2013, with the lid closed down to soften the effect. ‘Evertina’ will be available on 10” vinyl, CD and download from December 15th. IN HIS OWN WORDS: "The piano for me has so many different faces, so many personalities and wonders, it is like life itself, ever-changing yet always holding to a permanence of beauty. Like butterflies that never fly in a straight line but always carry their loveliness with them in their multi-angled paths. I want people to hear these pieces, that are always hidden from the world. I keep them locked away in a quiet place, far from the concert hall. Why do I do that? I guess it is because they are so easy to play, so effortless, I can do them while sleeping. Whereas my more demanding abilities on the piano come out in the forceful nature of continuous playing. There, the new ground is being broken and a new door is being opened for the world. But that does not mean that I am bound by nature or by god to do only continuous music. My heart moves into these pieces just as it moves into the continuous modalities. So here, for the very first time, I am bringing three of these little miniatures to the public view. May everyone enjoy them for their gentle simplicity and quietude. These three pieces fit so nicely together in spirit, they present a tableau, a tiny triptych that can reach the world without waiting for a major work, they stand beautifully on their own, and do not need an album to surround them with comfort and padding. No, they are what they are, and a short musical interlude as this record gives, is just perfect for their nature." – LUBOMYR MELNYK The cover artwork was created by American artist Gregory Euclide, who also designed the relief cover art for the album ‘Corollaries’.
