Notes & Reviews:
Although Paul Juon was a contemporary of modernist composers Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern, his music is stylistically aligned to the flowing emotional style of late Romanticism. Juon utilizes Russian and Nordic folk tunes, to which he adds sophisticated harmony and irregular beats. Once, a critic described his music as the missing link between Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky. Maria Riccarda Wesselin and pianist Clau Scherrer deliver these works in a way that will ensure their induction into the repertoire.
