    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.
