La Sept is a 1989 promotional album of music for La Sept written by Michael Nyman and performed by the Michael Nyman Band.[1] It is Nyman's fourteenth release. Gabrielle Lester makes her debut with the band on this album. After a 13-year hiatus (at least from recording) with the band, she would replace the departing Alexander Balanescu as concertmaster for The Michael Nyman Band during the recording of Facing Goya, and, as of 2008, remains in that position. Musical passages created for La Sept were later re-used for the piece The Final Score which is featured in the album After Extra Time.
