Although Szymanowski later dubbed his 'First Symphony' a \contrapuntal-harmonic-orchestral monster" and disavowed the influence of Wagner, Reger and Richard Strauss (also evident in the opulent 'Concert Overture'), it is an astonishingly powerful work by a composer only in his mid-20s and still enthralls a century after its premi?¿re. He described his 'Fourth Symphony' as "nearly a concerto" owing to the piano's prominent role, its highly-charged Neo-baroque character inviting comparison with Stravinsky. "
