5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best soundtrack ever made!, 4 April 2000
This review is from: Drowning By Numbers (Audio CD)
I am a VERY big Nyman fan, and I speak from experience when I say that this is one of his most impressive works, if not THE most. It is absolutely beautiful, based on Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for Violin & Viola K.364. I have heard all of the other Greenaway soundtracks, most of the other soundtracks incl. new ones (Cold Room, A La Folie, Carrington, Piano, Gattaca, Wonderland, End Of Affair, Hairdresser's Husband, Ogre, etc.), and I have heard almost all of his solo music (Kiss etc., Concertos, String Quartets, Piano Concerto + MGV, Songbook, Noises Sounds Sweet Airs, Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, And Do The Do/Zoo Caprices, Suit and the Photograph, etc.), and this work ranks among the very highest of all of them. Although I recommend all of Nyman's work, this has to come pretty high in the list. ....one of the finest audio delights you will ever have the pleasure of experiencing!

thks for yr review - as a big fan of Nyman - can you possibly do two things ? :

1) list the top 5 Nyman releases to start a novice off wth ?
2) explain what it is that you love abt this work : innovative, daring, clever + fulfilling emotionally + and how does he compare in yr opinion to Glass, Adams + Reich perhaps ? thks.
