Michael Nyman - Composer In Progress
Musik, Tanz, Theater
Michael Nyman is now one of the great composers of our time, who captivates above all with his richness of facets.
His repertoire includes operas, songs, orchestral works and of course film music, including the soundtrack to Jane Campion's film The Piano, which made him world famous.
In this impressive film by Silvia Beck, Nyman is portrayed as the headstrong, restless man behind this fascinating music. The film accompanies him through the various stages of his life - his personal search for clues in Poland, his second adopted country Mexico and one of the most important performances of his musical career: the concert at the English BBC Proms, where he presented a world premiere in 2009 with The Musicologist Scores.
