Composers are doers of deeds.

For my part I regard it as, in itself, neither one or the other... it is the way the music comes, the way it has to come.

But communication is two-sided - vital and profound communication makes demands also on those who are to receive it... demands in the sense of concentration, of genuine effort to receive what is being communicated.

I have sometimes been told that my music is 'difficult' for the listener.

What we ask of music, first and last, is that it communicate experience - experience of all kinds, vital and profound at its greatest, amusing or entertaining at another level.
