This review is from: String Quartets 1 - 3 (Balanescu Quartet) (Audio CD)
I have put that title because most of Nyman's music is only available on recordings by The Michael Nyman Band with a production such that it sounds like it is being played on a cheap synthesiser rather than by live instruments and much as I love the music I can usually only stand to listen to a couple of tracks before my ears feel like they are blocked from too fast a decent in a plane, or like I have a heavy cold and I just have to turn it off.
It is a joy to hear with clarity the wonderful subtle progressions in this at simultaneously life-affirming, joyous and profoundly sad music.
