I first became aware of Regan Ryzuk's prodigious talent in New York, back in the 80's, when we were neighbors and played for each other in our respective studios. Since then he has created a vast treasury of musical compositions...His music is modern, but I hear romantic underpinnings. It is intricately conceived but accessible, and his output is staggering. I view Regan Ryzuk as a highly gifted composer.
