Grove's Online says:

"His reputation outside Czechoslovakia and German-speaking countries was first made as an instrumental composer, with a small number of chamber and orchestral pieces written between his operas, which he considered his main work.The balance has now been largely redressed and he is regarded as one of the most substantial, original and immediately appealing opera composers of the 20th century."

Of course, I only know him from his string quartet, piano, and orchestral music....He would probably not like it that I've never heard his operas...
