Today we chose to be minimalistic and classic, so Michael Nyman is our choice for today’s article.

Michael Nyman is an English composer of minimalist music, he is also a musicologist and pianist.

Best known for numerous film scores and his multi-platinum soundtrack album named The Piano, Michael Nyman brings in front of us today his song The Piano.

Among Michael Nyman’s best operas we can name The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat; Letters, Noises, Sounds & Sweet Airs.

The free The Piano sheet music is the original soundtrack of the movie with the same name – The Piano.

The interesting thing about The Piano is that even if it is called a "soundtrack", the song is actually a score re-recording, as Michael Nyman performs the piano on the album,

The music is performed by the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Nyman.

The album was very successful and it was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and the BAFTA Award for Best Score.

The story behind its theme reveals a traditional Scottish melody named Gloomy Winter’s Noo Awa.

Because of its success, The Piano has been re-recorded by many famous artists and is the basis of Michael Nyman’s 1994 composition.

It was used in media, in shows, TV shows, and the soundtrack was also used in Alexander McQueen’s 2006 fashion show.
