"… Although his music is regarded as a synthesis of many prevailing styles, Humperdinck was very much an individual. Wagner clearly had a great influence on him… His harmonic language and instrumentation do recall Wagner occasionally, but also Richard Strauss and Mahler, who were his contemporaries…" Ian Denley in Grove Music Online.
