I didn't check, but his looks are very similar to Bantock's.

Des violons
De l'automne
Blessent mon coeur
D'une langueur
Monotone.

Okay, the man on the right: here in 1907 during a stay with Edvard and Nina Grieg at Troldhaugen and with Percy Grainger behind the wine:

Perhaps he does. But no, he's not Rued always-too-short-trousers Langgaard (and actually one generation older).

The first hint was already given: the man was a personal friend of the Griegs:
the man on the right: here in 1907 during a stay with Edvard and Nina Grieg at Troldhaugen
The second: he was a personal friend of Brahms too.

Violinist ?
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

Ok, no answer from the audience, so I'll say it: Julius Röntgen, familiar to collectors of his symphonies on the CPO label, and cousin of the famous physician.

Can you identify this good looking dude ?



Hint: he didn't keep his good looks very long and died at a young age.

Guess André's mystery composer and you have every right to test our knowledge of 'four symphony composers' again.  :D ;)
