To begin with he was influenced by avantgarde music trends, then his art turned towards neoromanticism. He is an important vocal composer, in whose art elements of characteristically Hungarian tradition inspired by folk music are mingled with grotesque, humorous, at times satirical elements. He often evokes the ideals of earlier musical periods in terms of sound and form. The most important characteristics of his music are sound that is naturally beautiful and harmonious formal proportions in the classical sense. In addition to compositions for the theatre, oratorios and instrumental and vocal works, he has written incidental music for films and the stage.
