Details

Paul Juon, who lived primarily in Russia and Germany, was labeled the 'Russian Brahms' already in his lifetime. The prevailing Russian tone of Juon's music, plus the influence of Brahms, cannot go unnoticed by the listener.

Juon was a contemporary of Alexander Scryabin and Ralph Vaughan Williams and like these otherwise very different composers Juon was situated between late-Romanticism and the dawn of Modernism. He shared with Scryabin a preference for piano miniatures and like Vaughan Williams Juon was influenced strongly by the folk songs in his environment, without really becomming a 'folklorist'
