In 1998 Torke was appointed the first Associate Composer of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Naxos has released an album of orchestral works commissioned and performed by that orchestra, which includes Rapture, his percussion concerto, and An American Abroad, a tone poem.
In 2003 Torke acquired the rights to re-issue the complete Decca/Argo recorded catalog of his works, and founded Ecstatic Records. Later that year, the boxed set of these complete recordings was picked by The New York Times as one of the top Classical albums of the year.
Current projects include the musical, House of Mirth, which was given a workshop (May 2004) at the Sundance Theater Lab at White Oak, with lyrics by Mark Campbell, book by A. R. Gurney, and directed by Bart Sher, and Italian Straw Hat, a full evening farce for ballet, commissioned by the National Ballet of Canada, with choreography by James Kudelka, and sets and costumes by Santo Loquasto.more
