Michael Nyman - The Kiss and Other Movements

A bit like a compilation album. The Kiss and Tango Between the Lines are the only new material Nyman wrote for the album. The rest of the tracks are taken from unfinished operas or film music Nyman worked on. Dagmar Krause (that chick that sang with Henry Cow and Art Bears and Slapp Happy and a million other bands) does half the vocals on The Kiss if that's any incentive.

  1. Some pieces were meant to be part of an opera about that strange masterwork that is Sterne's The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (1767)... Thank you very much for this!
