Gillian Moore discussed Tansy Davies's piece 'Re-greening' on BBC Radio 3's Record Review show

In discussion with presenter Kate Molleson, Moore described Davies as "one of our most exciting young composers of colourful, sometimes jazz and pop-tinged music that's really high-energy a lot of the time."

Moore describes first meeting Tansy Davies when she was fifteen in a workshop at her school, so has a connection to this piece, commissioned by the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, that she says "...sounds absolutely glorious and...is really unique and special to these particular circumstances of a youth orchestra."
