Macmillan's music is magical [and his] instinct for what ought to come next in a piece of music is unerring.

Macmillan has many musical irons in the fire.  Keeping station on Scott Macmillan would tax a long-distance runner. He's always got something going on, always juggling his triple-threat career of performing, conducting and composing.
