Tavener, J.: Pratirüpa (version for piano and string orchestra) (van Raat, Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic, Falletta)
Naxos: 9.70218

John Tavener's music is powerfully linked to his lifetime exploration of the metaphysical and spiritual, in search of truth beyond worldly concerns. Pratirüpa is one of Tavener's longer piano works, its title a Sanskrit word meaning 'reflection'. In this piano and orchestra version, the evocative sounds of the piano are echoed and transformed by the orchestra.
