Beata Halska & Claudio Chaiquin on researching & recording Florent Schmitt’s music for violin & piano

SCHMITT, F.: Violin and Piano Works - Sonate libre / Habeysseé / 4 Pieces / Chant du soir / Scherzo vif (Halska, Chaiquin)

Florent Schmitt was one of the most original French composers of his generation, and his chamber music shows him at his most personal. The Quatre Pièces, Op. 25 are evocatively lyrical while the Scherzo vif brims with intricate but fiery virtuosity. The Sonate libre, Op. 68 remains one of his most admired works, a bold diptych with lyric rhapsody at its core but one that also evokes the tragedies of the First World War. The late masterpiece Habeyssé, Op. 110 reveals the explosive power and subtle poetry of Schmitt’s imagination.
