Just now discovering this guy.
Pleasing orchestration chops, to say the least.

Check out his Prelude to a Drama. Perhaps my favorite work of his. I also like his Chamber Symphony, but he's primarily an opera composer, which is a genre I care little about.

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal
