    The viola concerto is fantastic. So glad to have stumbled across him.

    Update: he's actually an excellent composer. I have since this heard a cello concerto, violin sonata, various other chamber works. Every time I listen to a piece I expect a richness of melody, texture and structure - a deluxe kind of mastery of the late Romantic medium, and I am never disappointed. Even when the music sounds a bit too Rachmaninoff inspired, it's still wonderful.

    Any links to works? This guy has no results on shareminer or anything. If someone could upload any recordings at all I'd be very grateful (PM if you can!)
