I had heard Nyman played by purely saxaphone ensembles before but not purely on accordians (OK not quite purely because the composer himself joins in on piano on several tracks). The result is pleasing partly due to the playing but also because the selection of pieces is excellent, ranging from the Greenaway soundtracks (including Trysting Fields from Drowning By Numbers, Chasing Sheep - of course - from The Draughtsman's Contract and the brilliant Miranda from Prospero's Books) through to The Heart Asks The Pleasure First from The Piano. The highlight for me though is If from The Diary Of Anne Frank which never fails to move. It is simply further evidence of the success of the collaboration that The Wedding Tango sounds as if it could have been written by Piazzolla himself!
