Tucson-based classical composer Joshua Nichols has released an album of piano music called Metropolis. And the more I listen to it the more I love it. One reviewer wrote:

Joshua’s style invokes and balances the unique ‘cart blanch’ approach to 20th and 21st century and the beauty of prior periods of the classical art music. His music is a unique blend of tonal practice with the allure of modern compositional style, coupled with a mature sense of timing, phrase, melody, harmony, and drama. You will also hear his unapologetic influences from music history.

A good description. 🎵
