Michael Nyman - Acts of Beauts - Exit No Exit

Michael Nyman - Acts of Beauts - Exit No Exit

Subcollection: Piano

The album Acts of Beauty / Exit no Exit couples two world premiere recordings.

Acts of Beauty is a song cycle based on miscellaneous texts on beauty from a 1556 text of Vincenzo Cartari, which looks at the measurements of beauty by comparing buttocks to beauty in the urban environment as viewed by Kurt Scwitters and Dzuga Vertov to Martial's Epigrams on another kind of sexual measurement: the weighing of penis. It presents an entirely different Nyman approach to vocal writing than is found in Six Celan Songs/The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi.

Exit no Exit began life as Beckham Crosses, Nyman Scores, a 'homage' to the England football team as part of an extended documentary broadcast on BBC Radio 3 to celebrate the end of the World Cup finals in Japan / Korea in 2002. Nyman decided to take extracts from John Motson's commentary to the England v Argentina match and sample, loop and 'instrumentalise' them in the manner of Steve Reich's Different Trains: translating the loops repeating rhythmic and melodic patterns played without variation.

Rewritten for the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company in 2006, John Motson's voice is now replaced with a bass clarinet which not only imitates the commentator's highly idiosyncratic speech patterns, but also takes off from these with a concertante part of some virtuosity. A completely new, multi-section closing 10 minutes sequence was written specially for Exit no Exit, premiered on 7 February 2006 at Brighton's Gardner Arts Centre.

Music composed and performed by Michael Nyman
"The purpose of the Composer's Cut series is to present music from my soundtracks in a state of continuous evolution. As I transferred particular cues from film to concert hall both musical structures changed and performance styles developed, enabling the music, perhaps, to realise its true potential. So these recordings represent the Michael Nyman Band's state-of-performance as of spring 2005." - MN August 2005

Michael Nyman's score for Jane Campion's 1993 film The Piano is one of the most successful film soundtracks of all time. The film itself won the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes film festival in 1993 and went on to win several Oscars at the 1994 Academy Awards. Holly Hunter's role as Ada the film's central role was that of an elective mute who chose to communicate via her playing. If having the music feature so prominently in a film was unusual, for the music to additionally convey the dialogue of the main character is unique. The soundtrack of the film went on to become a multi million seller. Perhaps surprisingly for music with such strong ties to its original source many of the pieces from The Piano were subsequently used in a variety of other settings in film, television and advertising making it some of the most performed/frequently heard orchestral music of the last twenty years.

The concert suite for The Piano as performed by The Michael Nyman Band also became a staple of the band's concert repertoire and has been performed all over the world with the composer taking the roles of pianist and conductor. It is this expanded form of the soundtrack that Nyman chose to record as his own definitive edition in Abbey Road studios in April 2005. The piano pieces again form a dialogue, though here the dialogue is purely musical between pianist and orchestra rather having the piano pieces act as speech substitute as they did in the film. The resulting album is a wonderful example of film music transformed to a distinctive stand alone concert work.

Michael Nyman - The Piano Sings

Subcollection: Piano

The Piano Sings features music originally recorded for film soundtracks from 1993 to 2003 including Gattaca, Wonderland, The Diary of Anne Frank, End of the Affair, The Claim, Man with a Movie Camera and The Piano. With their more familiar band and orchestral settings removed, the pieces return to a point echoing their origins. Nyman commented "all of my music starts out as piano music - much of it in song form, so the opportunity to get back to that essence appealed to me, hence the decision to make the album". The album deliberately focuses on the lyrical side of Nyman's piano laying, hence the title.

The Piano Sings presents Michael Nyman's most intimate recording to date, neatly encapsulating the qualities that have made his compositions loved by millions of listeners around the world. While the composer's piano playing is a central element of his touring band and a familiar sound to the many people who've bought & loved his albums, this is the first time he has devoted a complete recording to solo piano.

While the term "classical crossover" has become akin to a swear word in some quarters, Nyman's music has displayed an ability to reach a mass audience and cross over in the best sense - with no compromise expected on behalf of composer or listener.

The Piano Sings is the ideal album for both his large fanbase and the more occasional classical music buyer.

At last, this recording is available again. Originally released by Saga on LP in 1985 and then lost in the mist of time following the labels closure. Now digitally re-mastered from original analogue sources, it is available on CD for the first time. This release will be much sought after as there is no listed competition in the current Muze Classical Catalogue for The Rite of Spring. David & Richard are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary season as Britain’s foremost piano duo and continue to tour the world enthralling all who attend their many concerts.

Another gem from the much loved Saga catalogue. Originally released on LP in 1984, The Planets recording went on to receive a British Music Retailers Association Award in 1985. This recording did see a CD release in the 1990’s, but it was only a brief appearance, and disappeared when the label closed. Now digitally remastered, this fine recording makes a welcome return to the catalogue. Even now there is little or no competition for this release.

The composer s own original two-piano version, completed before
orchestration! This European recording of the two-piano version
of The Planets brings new light to the orchestral masterpiece and
won the Music Retailers Association Award for Best Chamber
Music Record.
