"Goldmark's fame, mainly limited to Vienna and Budapest during his lifetime, was derived from his first opera, and his importance lies chiefly in his operatic works. He never belonged to a stylistic school, and in spite of his favour for Wagner he did not take part in the controversy between the 'progressive' and 'conservative' musical parties. His musical language is determined by a multiplicity of influences from Mendelssohn to Impressionism, incorporating Hungarian folk culture and his childhood memories of the synagogue. ... In his other compositions, namely his piano and chamber works, Goldmark shows himself the heir of Schumann and Mendelssohn and partly of Spohr." William Pfannkuch and Gerhard J. Winkler in Grove Music Online. (Inventory #: 32260)
