Rediscovering a Long-Ignored Late Romantic Composer

September 7, 2007

Performing in the Malmö Concert Hall, under the baton of Vassily Sinaisky, Sweden’s Malmö Symphony Orchestra recorded in surround sound three works by the late romantic Austrian composer Franz Schmidt. The main work was the Symphony No.1, written when the composer was 22 and much under the influence of Richard Strauss and Bruckner. This was accompanied by the Suite from the opera Notre Dame (1904-6). Also recorded, though in a church venue for inclusion with a separate disc of Schmidt’s Symphony No.2, recorded in May 2007, was Schmidt's Fuga Solemnis for Organ, Brass, Timpani and Tam-tam. The sessions took place from 22 to 30 August and were produced and engineered by Sean Lewis.
