Notes & Reviews:

Michael Nyman is particularly recognized for his work in film composition, showcased here in his soundtracks for Peter Greenaway. Often building upon pre-existing sources, from Purcell to Mozart, by blending in aspects of popular music and minimalist techniques, Nyman's compositions transformed how the role of film music is understood, while complementing Greenaway's avant-garde creations.
