The Piano
Michael Nyman

Review

As long as you avoid that piece, I think you'll get away with it, and this is one of the most beautiful scores I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Most of the pieces are soft and quiet, making it perfect for background music. In fact you could run the whole thing as a background to an adventure on repeat.

As most of the pieces are softer and quieter than most in the list, it is the perfect addition. It fills in the spaces when you need a little quiet.
