Michael Nyman - McAlmont and Nyman - The Glare

Michael Nyman - McAlmont and Nyman - The Glare
ID: MNRCD116
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: World Music
Subcollection: Vocal and Piano

For 'The Glare', McAlmont selected various Nyman compositions and turned to world news for inspiration. These new songs, written in the first person, draw on a variety of subjects from 21st century piracy (Going to America), lothario world leaders (In Rai Don Giovanni) drug mules (In Laos) and banking errors (Take the money and Run). David McAlmont's exquisite voice has enthralled soul and jazz fans both as a solo artist and as one half of the hit-making duo McAlmont and Butler ''One day he will open his mouth and a cathedral will fall out'' Melody Maker. Michael Nyman is one of the UK's most prestigious and innovative composers whose work reached its widest audience through his film scores for The Piano, Greenaway's The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and The Draughtsman's Contract (available on MN Records)


Michael Nyman and David McAlmont first met at the Freud Museum in London in the summer of 2000. They had both been invited to the launch of Nose Book: Representations of the Nose in Literature and the Arts by the author Victoria De Rijke. David had been a student of Victoria’s at Middlesex Polytechnic and the score of Michael's Nose-List Song (1985) was included in the book.


Michael and David talked and discovered that they were signed to the same record label, Virgin, at the time. Years before, David had become 'utterly entranced' by Nyman's soundtrack to Peter Greenaway’s film The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover and soon after he acquired the box set of Nyman's soundtracks became a huge fan.

In the years following the Nose/ Freud meeting it was often mentioned on the grapevine that Michael might be interested in working with David but this was all hearsay until 2007 when David, in a state of creative frustration, decided to join Facebook. Nyman contacted him within a week. They recollected their first encounter and quickly began plotting a collaboration.

Michael mentioned that he was totally unable to write his own song texts and David realised that he had become bored with 'the navel-gazing futility of writing love songs about his own feelings' and at 40 wanted to create something more worthwhile with his lyric writing

At this point Géricault’s painting The Raft of the Medusa emerged as a subject of interest to both musicians as David indicated that he had become fascinated with the life of the 19th century French painter - especially his determination to create documentary canvases based on contemporary life: battle-field injury, asylum inmates and shipwreck memoirs.

But this project was soon replaced by the current project where David wrote new songs based on contemporary news stories over pre-existing Nyman compositions. McAlmont's subject matter explores pertinent subjects as varied as 21st century piracy (Going to America), trafficked prostitution in Europe (City of Turin), sexually-charged world leaders (In Rai Don Giovanni), assisted suicide (Friendly Fire), reality television (The Glare), African orphan migration (Fever Sticks and Bones), banking errors (Take the Money and Run)and drug mules (In Laos).

David felt strongly that the songs were most effective if written from the first person point of view of the individual characters discovered in the researched reports to create an emotional engagement with the subjects that is lost by the time their stories emerge in the glare of the 24 hour news media. This process of course caused initial concern for McAlmont because he was taking already brilliant compositions, adding to and adjusting them. But fortunately, Michael Nyman was delighted with the result.

ID: BGS115

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Guitar

The guitar has always been the outstanding vehicle for Latin American music. Some composers stand out as exceptional and Astor Piazzolla is certainly Argentina’s most celebrated composer. The Five Pieces were written for Roberto Aussel and this is the definitive recording of his most important work for the guitar.

Roberto Aussel is Argentina’s most famous guitarist. His reputation as a leading figure in the guitar scene was cemented in 1980 when Astor Piazzolla composed and dedicated his ‘Five pieces’ to the young virtuoso.

REPERTOIRE Astor Piazzolla: Universally regarded as the most important exponent of the New Tango. Atahualpa Yupanqui: was without doubt the greatest exponent of Argentinean folk music. Hector Ayala: Another important and influential figure in the Argentinean folk music tradition. Antonio Lauro: Venezuela’s leading guitar composers.
