That’s fine. It is a matter of opinion. I love his style of composition. I think it is wonderful that he is composing classical music to be performed in the concert hall venue that is lyrical, tonal, melodic, and beautiful in the traditional understandjng of the word and all at the same time it is contemporary. It isn’t Copland or Rachmaninov. It isn’t film score music. It is a conglomeration of the ideas of Steve Reich, Coldplay, Radiohead, Thomas Newman, Copland, Corigliano, etc. It fits within a new school of composing with other composers like Jennifer Higdon, Michael Gandolfi, Christopher Theofanidis, Johnathan Leshnoff, Michael Daugherty, etc. however it has a very distinctive voice of those people in that group. It happens to be something I really, really like and appreciate.
