Description of Style

Music is a language, a vivid expression of the spirit. The composer's person manifests in the form of the sound world created by him/her. The will and the intention determine the currently selected style or shape and cast etc. The introduction of beautiful, sublime and transcendental things to this threatened world is of specific artistic and religious concern to me.
