The best solo piano works from the pen of Britain’s most innovative and celebrated composer, Michael Nyman, played by Ksenia Bashmet, daughter of the acclaimed violist Yuri Bashmet. The Piano Collection includes the haunting theme from The Piano. Little or no competition for the Michael Nyman solo piano works makes this disc a much sought after release.
“Ksenia Bashmet… often brings out a soulfulness and even, in the spacious calm and depth of tone of the Anne Frank excepts, a quiet grandeur that suggests late Beethoven as an influence I hadn't heard before.”
