Label: MN Records MNRCD 103

There seem to be two Michael Nymans. One is dissonant and the other melodic; and this is definitely the latter. This disc contains a series of solo piano recordings played by the composer featuring music originally recorded for film soundtracks from 1993 to 2003. It includes his most famous film score The Piano but I was very pleasantly surprised by the entire album, particularly ‘Diary of Love’ from The End of the Affair, which opens and closes the CD.
