Sa Nuit D'ete (Nocturnes) by Lauridsen is a haunting, unexpectedly powerful choral work. I enjoy it. Proverb (1995) by Steve Reich illustrates his essential weakness: he composes by coming up with a concept, rather than a visual or auditory line: what a small thought to fill 11 minutes. Igor Stravinsky I've listened to enough to think he's over-rated at the moment. And "Three Songs from Statuesque (2005) by Jake Heggie is a pleasure to listen to, with funny moments (Pablo Picasso, Head of a Woman 1932 being my favorite.)
