However,  as for composers, I have been intrigued by an obscure French   
composer who was a contemporary of Chopin and Liszt.  The name  is  
Charles-Valentin Alkan, and was a prodigious virtuoso, and  his  
capabilities are evident in his  compositions

I recall reading that Alkan was Jewish, and very orthodox. He  knew 
in Paris and was a child prodigy. Thanks for reminding me of  him.
