Notes & Reviews:

Following their recording of Franz Schmidt's 'Symphony No. 1' and excerpts from his opera 'Notre Dame', the Malmo Symphony Orchestra and Vassily Sinaisky here present Schmidt's astonishing 'Second Symphony'. The composer transformed his original conception of the work as a piano sonata based on a single theme into a kaleidoscopic essay for a large orchestra, rich with wind, brass and percussion instruments. The 'Fuga Solemnis' for organ, brass and percussion is an enduring testament to Schmidt's originality, inventiveness and mastery of counterpoint.

”Naxos provides very informative and intelligent notes, and a well-balanced, clean recording. This is an early Want List candidate for me.”-Fanfare
