About

'The Piano Sings 2' is the second collection of piano music which Michael Nyman has performed and released on his label, MN Records. It covers a wider range, in terms of both chronology and dynamics, than The Piano Sings which launched the label in 2005.

The disc features well-known music from well-known films ('The Draughtsman's Contract' and 'The Piano'), unknown music from unknown films (Conor McPherson's 'The Actors' and Michael Winterbottom's 'Everyday') and also music from 'Enemy Zero' (1997) which resurfaced in Michaelís soundtrack for Dziga Vertov's 'Man with a Movie Camera' and in his own film 'NYman with a Movie Camera'.

The album also contains two compositions which have no connection with film: Sadie's Song (1999) and Through the Only Window (2012). Franklyn from Michael Winterbottom's 'Wonderland' is self-evidently the model for 'The 7th Visit' and is included on this album as a fond memory of 'The Piano Sings'.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Studio 1 on the 25th, 26th March and 6th May 2013.
