Thanks for Greif's Cello Concerto! It's especially nice to hear an orchestral work of his since he concentrated mainly on chamber/vocal/instrumental music. His music has a harrowing emotional intensity that is quite rarely found in French music (not to say French music isn't emotional, it's just usually not as dark as Greif's music). His music often recalls Shostakovich (again rare for a French composer) in its dark anguish, but has a unique sound-world nonetheless. I especially enjoyed his Piano Trio, String Quartet no. 4 Ulysses and Sonate de Requiem for cello and piano. Unfortunately, most of the CDs of his music are quite hard to find now Sad
