Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Glare was Michael Nyman's collaboration with British soul singer David McAlmont. David wrote new songs based on contemporary news stories over pre-existing Nyman compositions. The album was voted one of the best albums of 2009 by the BBC. Simon Price, Independent on Sunday, said "once heard, you'll want never want to live without it". Acoustic Accordions is the extraordinary collaboration with Poland's foremost accordion trio, The Motion Trio. The album contains interpretations of nine of Nyman's greatest hits. "Nyman's music is so wonderful it even sounds good on the accordion."(Janusz Wojtarowicz). Sangam (a Hindi word meaning 'a coming together' or 'meeting point') is the culmination of a two year musical odyssey Read more by Michael Nyman which began with a month-long visit to India at the end of 2000. Sangam is Michael's ground-breaking collaborative work with leading Indian musicians reflecting both the commonalities and the differences between Western experimental and Indian classical music traditions.
