Ned Rorem?

Comment from a survey of music critics:

The critics’ top five favorite historical composers are Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms; their top five contemporary composers are John Adams, Arvo Pärt, Krzysztof Penderecki,
Ned Rorem, and John Corigliano.

Ned Rorem?

You've got to be kidding me. Pärt and Penderecki are the only two that deserve to be on there. And yeah... I can only think of Rorem as an author. At least his writing is listenable.
