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

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The incomparable Michael Nyman (The Piano) pillages his own back catalog by adapting his String Quartet No. 3 as the theme for this acclaimed tale of English boho painter Dora Carrington. Anyone torn to emotional shreds by Christopher Hampton's film and Emma Thompson's performance will find solace in its unspeakably beautiful and desperately sad music. --Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow-paced, but never boring! July 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I find this soundtrack to be very sad, which doesn't mean it isn't beautiful. It also has lively moments, but they end abruptly. Most of the themes are very lento, therefore suitable to the movie's pace. Mr. Nyman had composed some of this music long before he was commissioned to work on the soundtrack, and he managed to give the impression that he knew every character in the movie well. He does not fail at making us aware of the musicality behind the characters emotions. All in all, this soundtrack offers some of the most interesting string arrangemets I've found in contemporary film music.

Yes, gorgeous music from the always moving Michael Nyman. I love his scores. Gattaca and End of the Affair are also stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars a mrrior of emotions May 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
nyman's score for 'carrington' just floored me. his music gave insight to the complex and powerful emotions that drove many members of the bloomsbury group and their associates. the amin theme for carrington and lytton strachey was adapted from his string quartet #3. and the end of it is overwhelming in its emotional content. there are shorter pieces that are very rhythmic and lively; then are longer themes that define the men in carrington's life. my personal favorites are 'brenan', 'partridge' and 'floating the honeymoon'. i also like the inclusion of the schubert. this is a very classy score.

When I saw the movie, the music added something more to it...and I believe without it, the movie wouldn't be as entertaining.
