MICHAEL NYMAN IN CONCERT
The Michael Nyman Band live at Studio Halle Michael Nyman, who is famous for his Oscar nominated film score for Jane Campion’s film “The Piano”, is without doubt one of the great contemporary composers. Fitting the theme of the Handel-Year 2009, Michael Nyman celebrated the German premiere of his newest composition “The Musicologist Scores” in Handel’s hometown Halle. In that piece the composer looks deeply into the subject of Handel’s work. Furthermore, many other of Nyman’s works were performed. All over the world the powerful, energetic playing of The Michael Nyman Band - developed under Nyman‘s leadership over a period of three decades - brings his works to sparkling life and has long since become a characteristic feature of his music.
