Kind of a jack of all trades as well as a wanderer between the worlds. Wisner's pseudonymous 1961 Grieg adaptation "Asia Minor" with that hammering ragtime/ boogie woogie piano and those bizarro strings is still far out by today's standards ... and was only outclassed by Dave Edmunds' version of Khachaturian's Sabre Dance seven years later.
