He works in a wide variety of styles, from his symphonic Tom Sawyer – A Ballet in Three Acts, which premiered in Kansas City, Missouri as the first full-length ballet in our history to be created by an American composer and choreographer and based on an American literary masterpiece, to December Songs (a song-cycle commissioned by Carnegie Hall), his Cello Concerto premiered by YoYo Ma, his American Cantata commissioned by the Kennedy Center (premiered by the National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Leonard Slatkin) and the concept album Goya – A Life in Song written for Placido Domingo. He resides in New York City.
