Highlights of Fine's producing career include work with Andrea Bocelli, the Vienna Philharmonic, and the London Symphony.

As a composer Michael Fine scores are born from his improvisations on the piano and are nourished by his travels and his readings: his music derives from a poetic imagination and carries therefore lots of visual evocations. On his latest recording - Seasons, Fine presents music inspired by place as diverse as Korea and its palaces (At the Gate) to Scotland and the writer Alexander McCall Smith (Brother Fox), the world and its landscapes pass by over the seasons (Seasonal Rites) as you listen to it.
