ArtistsMichael Nyman Band
Taking poetry from the First World War as his inspiration, Nyman has crafted an eloquent song cycle, presented in two groups of four songs, each preceded by several instrumental movements. The texts were all written by poets who – with the exception of the English artist-poet, David Bomberg – sadly lost their lives during the First World War.
Eight Songs form a song cycle and are influenced by a series by French poet Gaston de Ruyter titled Chansons Vieilles Sue D’Autres Airs; Old Songs To Other Tunes. They include lyrics from First World War poets including David Bomberg, Isaac Rosenberg and Alfred Lichtenstein.
