What a giftless bastard.

Musically speaking he is a lunatic

A classical composer only in Paris, the great city of quacks.

Very bad bombast

His bombast is bad; it is very bad; in fact there’s only one thing worse

Gaudy musical harlotry

It is gaudy musical harlotry, savage and incoherent bellowings.

He has made music sick.

Is he actually a man? Is he not rather a disease. Everything he touches falls ill. He has made music sick.

Far too noisy

Far too noisy… far too many notes.

The gibberings of a big baboon

Over-excited by a dose of alcoholic stimulus.
