Music, Classical and opera
Michael Nyman

This month the Avea Extraordinary Music Concerts series hosts Michael Nyman, who is known worldwide for his numerous film scores, especially his soundtrack for ‘The Piano’. As a music critic, Nyman was the first person to use the term ‘minimalism’, before he went on to compose and become a representative of the minimal music movement. In 2011, Nyman received the Ivor Novello Classical Music Award at Grosvenor House, giving him a place among England’s biggest composers.
