Two world premiere recordings of works by the brilliant Nico Muhly are at the heart of this new album by Omega Ensemble, an album that explores the American modern tradition through four remarkable by works by Muhly and the great Philip Glass.

Muhly is a musical polymath and one of the most exciting composers in the world today – a remarkable example of how music in the 21st century crosses genre barriers more than ever, he was the youngest composer to be commissioned by The Metropolitan Opera in its 139 year history, has written operas, pop songs, chamber music and more, and has worked with everyone from The Tallis Scholars to Icelandic icon Björk and indie rock darlings The National and Grizzly Bear.

The three Muhly works on this album are incredible examples of his style: wearing their influences proudly, but leaping forward into new modes of musical expression with extraordinary beauty and lush instrumental textures. This album also features a work by Philip Glass, the master of modern American music (Muhly was Glass’s assistant for eight years).

This album was recorded with Nico Muhly overseeing the sessions, and produced and engineered by ARIA Award-winning Tonmeister Virginia Read. Featuring a world-class lineup of musicians, this is an extraordinary, internationally significant recording of some of the most beautiful music written this century.
