"Too Much Ego" is a collection of three chronological orchestral works composed between September 2015 and October 2017. Tristan Xavier Köster forms an off-kilter balance between his youthful love of metal and the avant-garde, the harmony of classical music's religious canon, and the folk music of southern China's Guangxi region. 37 minutes in length, this promotional EP (Represented by GEMA) encompasses works commissioned by the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, HfMT Hamburg, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra, and Hamburg Sinfoniker. Dedicated to his wife, Katie Köster, and his mentor, Xiaoyong Chen.
