"Luders’s style reveals a familiarity with both Viennese operetta and the music of Arthur Sullivan. His works have an abundance of graceful waltzes and humorous or sentimental love songs, with sophisticated melodies, simple but varied rhythms and phrases, and a wider harmonic vocabulary than most stage musicals of the time."
