Personal Quote:

There are very, very few composers in history whose work changed all the music that followed it: Beethoven (Ludwig van Beethoven) was one, Wagner (Richard Wagner) was another. I believe that posterity will add to their select ranks The Beatles. See more »

He is a composer of choral music, stage musicals and TV theme tunes. See more »
