Juon:

Suite in five movements, Op. 93

Symphony F sharp minor, Op. 10


Like many a composer of the generation born between 1870 and 1880, Paul Juon was situated in the transitional period between late-Romanticism and the Modern. The radicalism of an Arnold Schoenberg was foreign to him, however. Like Schreker and Zemlinsky he held fast to tonality, choosing to expand it rather than give it up completely. Right to the end, Juon remained rooted in the expressive world of the late 19th century, and yet in two very different fields he succeded in making a brave foray into the direction of the Modern.

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'
