En 1993 la música de El Piano dio a conocer mundialmente a un Michael Nyman que, aunque ya llevaba años trabajando en la industria como compositor, incluso para grandes directores como Peter Greenaway, consiguió ser consagrado con esta obra maestra que le valió el multiplatino en música clásica, siendo además uno de los compositores con más resonancia mediática de la última década del siglo pasado por la simplicidad de sus obras.

Y es que si algo caracteriza a este compositor es que es capaz de encontrar la infalible melodía que se repetirá en casi todas las canciones que componen la música de sus films. Una melodía que se convierte en elemento clave para el acompañamiento del metraje y que sabe transmitir no sólo la esencia de cada escena en la que puede escucharse, sino que entona un himno global que hace reconocible la película, por muchos años que hayan pasado desde su estreno.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711933227, Paperback)

Six original compositions for solo piano, by Michael Nyman, from the award winning film by Jane Campion. English composer Michael Nyman has developed into one of the most popular, if not important, composers of film music, and his film score for the 1992 film the Piano is without doubt the most famous and familiar of his compositions. The tone of Campion s film is perfectly emphasised by Nyman s style and though much here is beautiful and rich, it is a haunting and foreboding sound picture that reflects the greys of sea, sky and spirit.
