It's very captivating for the first 40 minutes or so, then it tends to be a bit repetitive.

OK, I've been here before. Check. (whew, saved another $20 right thar, lol)

Anything good to read about this challenging composer? Aesthetics would particularly interest me. And appreciation, in the sense of his relation to other composers and thinkers and painters and musical « schools »

My impression is that his music is heavy, oppressive, and for me that’s not usually specially attractive, on the contrary.

But there are two things going on sometimes which have caught my imagination. One is the pulse. It is often a slow pulse, and very alive, the music breaths. And the second is the dissonance, at least in the older pieces.
