He took private lessons and became a respected pianist, but far from the virtuosos in the music salons. The music he composed was far from fashion and might not have brought him acclaim in France, but it did earn him respect from his colleagues. Even the hard-to-please Hector Berlioz expressed with surprise “…that a composer of his importance should still be so little known in Paris…”
