Fictional composer of the "Gingerbread Suite" played by the Gotham Symphony from the short humor piece "The Life Drama of a Music Critic in Four Clippings," by Lawton MacKall. It first appeared in the July 1914 The Century magazine, and was reprinted in a 1922 collection of his work titled Bizarre.

François Grise's "Gingerbread Suite," scored for violin, piccolo, trombone, and celesta, might have been interesting had it been more of a novelty; but, since it had been heard in New York five times within four years, its performance on this occasion was a mistake.
