Seven of Michael Torke's most popular orchestral showstoppers are presented on this 2012 compilation in Decca's 20C series, which surveys the most important works of the 20th century. The listener who is unacquainted with Torke's eclectic and ingenious compositions will get a clear idea of their originality as well as their slickness, and the high energy of his music as a whole is likely to leave a strong impression. Torke is often superficially classed as a post-minimalist composer, but the interplay of minimalism, jazz, neo-romanticism, and popular elements puts him in a separate category that defies simplistic labeling.
