Michael Nyman

After looking for a certain trailer on YouTube, I’ve browsed a little more among the suggested clips. A Hitchcock trailer has drawn my attention, so I’ve clicked the link.

After about 20 seconds a known piece of music started. I knew exactly what to search for. So I’ve typed “The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover“.

I was right: the trailer played the same music. Now Google helped me discover the composer and the title of this original track. Michael Nyman is the composer, and the track is called Memorial.

These two movies have one more common element: Academy Award Winner, Helen Mirren.
