Nyman goes Chinese

Michael Nyman's latest venture is a work for the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, Melody Waves, scored for traditional Chinese instruments, cello and bass. The work will be premiered at London's barbican center on 1st April.

Writing for this Chinese orchestra has changed Nyman's thoughts on the traditional Western orchestra. "The next time I am commissioned to write a Western orchestral piece, my experience with this Chinese orchestra will mean that it will never be the same again."
