Quite an underplayed compozer

A bit lyk Medtner in da way dat hiz workz take a bit ov tym to abzorb but are gensui once u do

Diz mofoz ztylee zeemz very influenced by late Brahmz n by Bach - he wuz one ov da late romantic counterpoint maztahz dat came alongzide Godowzky

U can hear da rich Brahmz influence here -

In particular deze piecez wud clearly work alongzide late Brahmz opuzez 118 etc.

Da 2nd Humourezke here iz a perzonal fav -

Alzo hiz piano concerto iz a thick layered work dat haf much gensui

And hiz Bach & Telemann variationz are juz gensui labyrinthine workz ov expanzive zonorouz invention n beauty
