Wherever Bloch is from his Concerto Grosso No. 1 from 1925 never gets old for me to listen to or any of the above mentioned pieces for that matter. My dad was from Switzerland, lived in US from 1922 and never lost his accent, he considered himself both Swiss and American, and I can just imagine Ernest's accent and world view was the same as his! (Hope he didn't have a razor strap like my dad did, sometimes dedicated to other things--my butt--than sharpening a razor!)
