behind the scenes of a contemporary classical composition

Famous classical pieces composed by Beethoven, Bach, Stravinsky and many others have been embraced around the world. Audiences have learned to appreciate this musical language, spoken by these composers.
However, this language wasn't always clear to its listeners. Many years had to pass before the beauty and complexity of this music found a connection with the public.

The music documentary 'Orion Exposed' decipheres the musical language of modern classical composer Jeff Hamburg.
What is the message of modern classical composers and is the audience ready to understand its message?
