The Piano (includes Big My Secret, The Heart Seeks Pleasure First, The Promise)
Nyman's emotive tunes become the voice of mute heroine Ada McGrath in this understated score.
Michael Nyman didn't write the central tune that runs through The Piano, that's actually called 'Bonny winter's noo awa', but he did compose the rest of the film's excellent score. Michael Nyman's profile rocketed following the success of The Piano and his film score went on to become a classical bestseller. He's also known for his long term collaboration with British filmmaker Peter Greenaway.
