Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
[Juon's] music is easy to listen to - tonal and melodic with a Russian flair and clear romantic roots. His fellow student, Sergei Rachmaninov called him "the Russian Brahms", and indeed, this is the composer that most comes to mind while listening to his music He had a predilection for irregular rhythms; even polyrhythmic passages occur. It's both enjoyable and interesting to listen to.... ... read more ...

Juon occupied himself with the piano throughout his creative life, and he himself was an outstanding pianist who often performed his own works. Dedicated to Brahms, Chopin, and Russian tradition, these works are distinguished by bold harmonies and unusual or irregular rhythms. Polyrhythmic passages are also in evidence.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The Quintet with two violas, written seven years later, moves beyond the influence of Brahms, with an individual style characterized, shifting meters, more daring harmonies and modulation modulations, and imaginative exploration of instrumental color. Moreover, Russian folk music, which Juon claimed was his earliest and most persistent influence is consistent.
