Thanks, Dundonnell - my pleasure :-)
To "relate" is OK, but there are many reviewers of unknown or forgotten music having no further instrument in their heads than the "comparing" one, making them desperately looking for quotations or imitations of great composers. The Brun case is a similar one: since in earlier reviews and encyclopaedias it was written that his music has a Brahmsian (or even a Brucknerian) provenience, this stigmatized him. Even today, my CDs are reviewed that way: most authors generalized, writing about one or two CDs even before they knew what kind of music was to come! Already after the release of the second CD, David Hurwitz wrote than my Brun committment was a lost cause - and another US reviewer came to the conlcusion that this music was a proof that we Swiss must have not enough sex!
