Joseph Marx just came to my attention, I bought his extravagant 'eine Herbstsymphonie' and I love it. He also wrote 6 Klavierstücke, I discovered to my surprise that I had them, sorry Joseph, and I played through them. A very pleasant and rather rare mix of Brahms and Scriabin (bien étonnés de se trouver ensemble!) technically quite some stiff hurdles to take. Does anyone know these pieces, or even played them?

Marx's piano concerto has been played by Jorge Bolet.

It's big and hefty, and sounds like a cross between Brahms and Reger.....

I have the 6 pieces seperately, so I don't know their order, but Arabeske and the Prelude (not the Fugue) are very Scriabinesque, the Rhapsodie and the Ballade more in a 20th century Brahms vein, the Albumblatt in between the two, the Humoreske leaning more towards Reger, very interesting 'Jugendstil'-music, I know the piano concerto, somewhat of a monstrosity as to difficulty and complexity, not very rewarding as all is covered by a thick layer of orchestral earcandy but very pleasant to listen to, I even heard his 2nd concerto, called 'Castelli Romani', some rare cross between Respighi and well, Marx, who was a friend of Ottorino, and of Ravel, Szymanowski, Puccini etc.

I discovered him a few years ago and immediately loved him. I even learned that prelude (without the fugue) and recorded it back then and I still play it.



There were almost no recordings of his symphonic works but recently Naxos and some other label released a few recordings. He’s a master of late romantic harmony which unfortunately is the reason why he is rather obscured because the trends had shifted towards atonal music.
