Notes & Reviews:

The year 1981 saw the release of Michael Nyman, the first Michael Nyman Band recording and a groundbreaking record that presented Nyman's unique take on minimalism and experimental music. Long out of print, the album has been a rare and sought-after collectable for many years. This 30th anniversary CD reissue features a retro-look black vinyl CD in a replica gatefold LP-style sleeve. The album was originally produced by Nyman's ex-Maidstone Art School student, David Cunningham, founder of the Flying Lizards and producer of every Nyman recording for the following ten years. Much of the music is material from the early films of Peter Greenaway, but the album also includes In Re Don Giovanni, Nyman's classic deconstruction of the "Catalogue Aria" from Mozart's Don Giovanni. Michael Nyman was a turning point in the composer's career, marking the beginning of a new style and direction that ultimately shaped nearly all of the composer's future works.
