Michael Nyman & Michael Nyman Band
One of the most important composers of our times, Michael Nyman is a major figure in the field of art. His infinite creativity is not only expressed through composition: Nyman is also a performer, a conductor, a pianist, an author, a musicologist, a photographer and a director. He has composed music for many films by the acclaimed British director Peter Greenaway, while his soundtrack for the film The Piano by Jane Campion has sold over three million copies.
Russian soprano Elena Stikhina and Greek baritone Dimitri Platanias belong to those lyrical artists who are much sought-after by the world’s greatest opera houses, as they are capable of riveting performances, even in the most demanding operatic roles.
