The German Rudi Stephan and Briton George Butterworth both died around the age of 30 in the first world war, before they could complete their predicted by experts brilliant career. At the threshold of modernity both found their own way of musical expression: Stephan in wild expressiveness, Butterworth in rather quiet, almost other-worldly melancholy.
