About

Paul Juon, who lived primarily in Russia and Germany, was labelled the 'Russian Brahms' during 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 Scriabin 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 Scriabin 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'.
