"The Piano" (1993) - Michael Nyman


"The Piano" is one of the most powerful soundtracks of the '90s. It's no wonder that Nyman played excerpts from the soundtrack for Live Earth in Japan. In "The Piano", music is the movie's language. Ada uses her piano, at first stranded on the New Zealand beach, to communicate her deepest desires.
"To the Edge of the Earth" is a mysterious, eerie sonic description of Ada's journey with her daughter from Scotland to the enigmatic Land of the Long White Cloud. "A Wild and Distant Shore" again describes the New Zealand wilderness. "The Heart Asks Pleasure First" is the simple love theme that returns in many forms. "Deep Into The Forest" has an urgency, describing Ada's husband spying on her and her lover. "The Embrace" and "Bed of Ferns" are incredibly erotic. There is melancholy in "The Sacrifice" and "I clipped your wing". "Dreams of a Journey" is more joyous than the opening song, bringing the story full circle. The only weak song in the whole score is the clunky "Here to there".
"The Piano" is a classic soundtrack;without the movie, it stands on its own. Forbidden love never sounded so beautiful.

Thanks a lot for this ost! I've been looking for this baby for some time, now. I bought it on tape back when the film came out(God, I'm getting old, I'm from the time when you could buy albums on tape!Can you remember that?)but I've missplaced the thing and simply can't find it. So, thank you again. Keep up the good work!
