I have been doing a lot of listening to your CDs, and I find your music surprisingly Romantic! You have bypassed all the Boston serialists, and I am very grateful. My favorites so far are the Robert Frost songs. The singers for both sets of songs are spectacular. Your performers generally are great, the result of all your work with the BSO and Boston Pops, which put you in touch with wonderful performers, plus your teaching, of course. I distinctly hear some Mahler in the Frost songs. I like the flow of your music, so lyrical and evocative. Thanks for sending me your CDs!
