Biography

As one of Britain's most innovative and celebrated composers, Michael Nyman's work encompasses operas and string quartets, film soundtracks and orchestral concertos. Far more than merely a composer, he's also a performer, conductor, bandleader, pianist, author, musicologist and now a photographer and film-maker. Although he's far too modest to allow the description ... Read more in Amazon's Michael Nyman Store

Format: Audio CD
Michael Nyman has said he composes evertyhing at his piano, this bit of information suddenly explains the distinctive sound of everything from saxophones to violins in his gorgeous music. It seems natural, then, for this album to launch his new personal label. It also gives a taste of what his recent 60th birthday concert must have been like. (A tantalizing glimpse of that event is shown in Winterbottom's new film "9 Songs.)
The album contains piano solo "interpretations of pieces originally written for film soundtracks between 1993 and 2003." It is an achingly simple and direct overview of Nyman's extraordinary output over the last decade.
I don't know if I'd recommend it as the ultimate Nyman album, I think I'd stick with "The Very Best" 2 disc set. Lovely as his piano solos are, the Michael Nyman Orchestra has a sound that should not be missed. Still, this is a close second to that release and an absolute essential for any film or modern classical music lover.
Mr. Nyman is an epically talented and important artist. Here's hoping he's able to release many more albums on his new label.

This is one of the most beautiful piano album i have ever had the pleasure of listening to. The number of emotions that this album takes you through is overwhelming. It can be heartrendingly haunting or beautifully fantastical. I would recommend this album to anyone who is touched and reactive to lone piano music. An incredible listening experience.

I must admit that I have yet to purchase this album, but I have just returned from Michael Nyman's concert performance in Liverpool based on the CD's content. If the disc's music is as beautifully emotional as it was to listen to live, then this can only be described as another triumph for Nyman. His distinctive style is wonderful and I feel sometimes over looked, which is unfortunate as he really is superb!
