Playlist for 08.18.01 - "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat"

The Difficult Music Listening Hour
A chamber opera by Michael Nyman based on the true story of a man who had a rare medical condition that caused him to see only abstract shapes, colours, shadows, etc. and how he managed to function in life anyway. You may have heard of Michael Nyman, or at least some of his other music, if you are a fan of Peter Greenaway films, or saw "The Piano" which is probably the best known movie soundtrack that he has written.
