Michael Nyman is an acclaimed English composer of minimalist music, pianist, librettist and musicologist, well known to the general public for his many award-winning movie scores written during his lengthy collaboration with the filmmaker Peter Greenaway, and his multi-platinum soundtrack album to Jane Campion’s The Piano. His operas include The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Facing Goya, and Sparkie: Cage and Beyond. He has also written concerti, string quartets, and other chamber works, many for his Michael Nyman Band, with and without whom he tours as a performing pianist. Michael Nyman is also a video filmmaker, and his work has been extensively exhibited, including at the Tate Modern, the Reina Sophia Museum, and MoMA. Distractions is a series of video works shot in various parts of the world documenting capsules of everyday life, living cultures, and forgotten traditions in a diaristic study of modern-day life, accompanied by Nyman’s soundtrack.

Formed 40 years ago this autumn, the Michael Nyman Band performed the soundtracks for the classic Peter Greenaway films, from early experimental films like The Falls through The Draughtsman’s Contract to Prospero’s Books, and has become Nyman’s ‘working model’ for all his subsequent work, in the concert hall and the opera house. This programme presents Nyman’s work for the Michael Nyman Band chronologically, including the major soundtracks, his vocal music and new work.
