Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian pianist who has developed what he says is a new approach to the piano which he calls "continuous music".

The speed at which he plays is at the heart of the technique and at times there are 19 notes being played every second.

Arts correspondent David Sillito went to meet him as he prepared for his debut concert.
