"In the field of composition he represents a style that is distinctive in the Slovak musical milieu. The roots of his work are in the Viennese and Budapestian compositional school (F. Schmidt, E. Dohnányi, B. Bartók, A. Albrecht). His music is characterised by originality within the framework of traditional rules, broad perspective in form and harmony, concentration, equilibrium of the rational and emotional elements, and a sense of humour and lyricism. His compositional language reaches its highest degree of concentration and purity in the chamber works of his later creative period."
