‘Woodwinds kept whooshing within tendril textures suggesting time-lapse photography of a burgeoning forest … a gorgeous celebration of youth and rebirth.’ The Times

Here's a little taster of Tansy Davies's track Re-greening performed by the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at the BBC Proms 2015.

Commissioned by NYO, Re-greening illustrates the orchestra's bold creativity and energy, calling for the surprising set-up of no conductor and incorporating two English melodies Sumer is Icumen In and Tallis’ Canon.

Re-greening is part of Tansy Davies's first, full orchestral album entitled Nature. Available from the NMC shop and across all streaming services Friday 23 April.
