Love this guy! You know why? I performed his Poem for Flute and Orchestra... WITH orchestra a few weeks ago! It was amazing! Best night of my musical life. We flutists of the Flute World highly admire him for this single piece, and so do I. <3

I heard someone once say Griffes is somewhere between Debussy and Stravinsky... NO! Don't compare him to Stravinsky! If anyone, let him be compared to Ravel, after all, Stravinsky was highly influenced by Ravel. And what is more, American influence too, I think he blends Celtic and Afro-American melodies in his music, at least, that's what I noticed in Poem.
