A selection of new works by the young British Composer Tarik O’Regan, here given their premiere recording. Written since his move to New York, these compositions reflect the cultural plurality of today’s urban environment. Here is an art that seeks to forge a link between the spheres of “the ecstasies above” and the harsh realities of life on earth.
