In fact, you can tell there are influences in his work from many of the classical European composers such as Dvorak or mabey even a littel Gustav Mahler. And without a doubt his style is very similar to Erich Korngold, a German composer. Music is a universal language. It doesn't matter who wrote what or what style it is in. Good music is just plain good music.
