Quick Overview

Of his own works the composer writes:

My credo:
1. The music must speak for itself
2. Great art is a miracle
3. That which the mind of man (Humankind) can conceive will be done. I hate long, involved explanations, which in the end become excuses for the music. I guess my motto is 'play it again, Sam.' That is the only explanation that means anything.
