Yes I know he's not as big as Mozart or Bach (I didn't put capitals in the title) but fuck it he's one of my favourite composers, and I find his music is often quickly judged as showy and virtuosic, sometimes just blatantly romantic, occasionally interesting harmonically, and not much more. It's true, he is all of these things, but that doesn't mean his music should be reduced to that!

Heard his Benediction de Dieu dans la solitude performed live this past weekend and was really blown away But I've heard that's not very representative of most of his works.

I wonder where you heard that, I think it's very characteristic of him.

That's what my mother said, who went to the concert with me and had never heard the piece before. But it looks like it's part of a whole solo piano cycle, so I'll probably check out the whole thing.

Yes it's part of Harmonies Poétiques et religieuses, which has 10 pieces. I very much like Pensées des morts (perhaps just as good as Benediction) and Cantique d'amour. Funérailles is considered to be very good too, I haven't fully grasped it yet.
