Nyman keeps the theatrics to a minimum, crafting an evocative work that manages to be both personal & universal.

This crossover hit, the soundtrack to Jane Campion's film, is subtle & pretty. He lets the music run its course, never pushing or cutting off a piece until it says what it needs to. A towering commercial achievement from a decidedly non-commercial artist.
