About the album

The Piano Sings 2 is the second collection of piano music which I have performed and released on MN Records. It covers a wider range, in terms of both chronology and dynamics, than 'The Piano Sings' with which I launched the label in 2005. 
 
It features well-known music from well-known films (for example The Draughtsman's Contract (1983) and The Piano (1993)), unknown music from unknown films (Conor McPherson's The Actors (2003) and Michael Winterbottom's Everyday (2012)) and also music from Enemy Zero (1997) which has resurfaced in my soundtrack for Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera and my own film NYman with a Movie Camera. On The Piano Sings 2 there are also two compositions which have no connection with film: Sadie's Song (1999) and Through the Only Window (2012). Franklyn from Michael Winterbottom's Wonderland is self-evidently the model for The 7th Visit and is included on this album as a fond memory of The Piano Sings.
