This is his first of two symphonies, composed in 1956. It shows an interestingly distinctive voice, with some nice crunchy harmonies, especially in the slow movement. There is a tendency to slip into banality on occasion, and on first hearing I am not convinced by the finale, but it is worth hearing it through more than once.

He is sometimes referred to as the Latin Shostakovitch because of his style and even Shosty commented on his talent..

I think that could be because both he and Shostakovitch were developing on from Mahler.
