Format: DVD
Michael Nyman is best known as the composer of the soul stirring soundtrack to the Jane Campion film, "The Piano". Even people who may not know his name have probably heard at least a bit of that particular soaring, beautiful Scottish inflected music featuring, of course, the piano. Michael Nyman, composer, though; has been around for a long time producing music that is minimalist in its template, completely tonal in its vocabulary and high energy in its sound. It is frequently loud, fast and energizing to some, confrontational to others.

I do not see how anyone can watch this concert and not admire at least the physical workout required of his ensemble. It is quite exciting; sheer fun, to watch the kinetics involved with his string players (who admit to occasional tendinitis!Read more ›
