Erlanger, a French composer, "was attracted to the stage rather than the concert hall... [He] was one of a generation of French operatic composers including such musicians as Bruneau, Hüe and Leroux on whom the influence of Wagner and Massenet weighed heavily. He had a solid technique, and his works bear witness to an assured sense of musical scene-setting and remarkable qualities of orchestration, most obvious in the large crowd scenes in Le fils de l'étoile and Aphrodite."
