possible article

Hello Everyone,

I'm planning to add some information on the compositions, like background information etc.
This is what I have so far for my Wikipedia article:

Christian Lauba

Christian Lauba (Born 1952) is a famous teacher and composer who was born in Sfax, Tunisia. He studied music at the Conservatory of Bordeaux. He won First Prize for composition in the class of Michel Fuste-Lambezat. In 1983 he won the SACEM prize, which is a prestigious music reward. In 1984 he won the Medal of Honor of the City of Bordeaux, and in 1994 he won first prize in the Berlin International Composition Competition. He has taught many master classes in composition and lectured at many universities including: Bowling-Green located in Ohio, Winnipeg located in Canada, and the University of Maryland. He has received a substantial amount of commissions from the French state, several contemporary music ensembles, and all kinds of orchestras. His works have been performed all over the world. [1] Some may know Christian Lauba also as Jean Matitia.

Hey Matt,

This all looks good to me. One suggestion though: explain to the reader why Christian Lauba is important. What has he contributed to the field of music that is particularly unique and significant? What has he done with the saxophone that gets other saxophonists excited?

Looking forward to the article!
