Music on a Monday...The Piano

This beautiful piece is from the soundtrack of one of my favourite films...The Piano.
The music is composed by Michael Nyman and its haunting melody very well suits the dark love story portrayed in the film.
Holly Hunter plays the beautiful Ada, who communicates only through her piano and using sign language which her young daughter interprets.
Her husband, Alistair Stewart (Sam Neill) tells Ada there is no room in the house for her beloved piano and trades  it with Baines (Harvey Keitell) for some land.
Baines becomes infatuated with Ada and offers to trade with her, one key at a time,for the return of her beloved piano.
To find out how this happens I am afraid you will have to go and watch the film.


Love Maffy x
