Two of the best Nymans on film must be "Knowing the Ropes."There is a good live version of that on YouTube. Also, from the same concert,
'Chasing Sheep Is Best Left To Shepherds' is well worth a listen.

The first I've put up here is with Nyman himself and his orchestra live.
Interesting.Yes, a good listen. He never fails to impress on his concerts and recordings.
A real master and very original in his writing.
The first video is from the concert I mentioned in my earlier post.
I know the Bassist on view in the opening bars of the first video.
(or did, we worked for the same company (CSE) doing forces shows around the world) He played (and still does as far as I know) in the 'Michael Nyman Band' for many years.
The band celebrated 40 years together in 2017, with quite afew of the original musicians (IIRC). That's some going..!!
