    I'm familiar with Bortkiewicz and find his piano music uniformly pleasant. (The concerto you mention is better than merely pleasant!) The trouble for me is finding a piece that stands out in some way, or at least holds enough interest to be worth the study. That's why he's stuck on the lower reaches of my to-do list. But I appreciate his aesthetic and I hope to get around to him someday.
