Notes & Reviews:

This release inaugurates a new MDG series featuring live recordings with Franz Schmidt's Symphony No. 4 and the Intermezzo from his Notre Dame period. Franz Schmidt grew up as a musical child prodigy at the age of twenty-two he composed his first symphony and was awarded the Beethoven Prize of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde. This live recording with the Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn in Beethoven Hall conveys a lot of atmosphere, and Stefan Blunier brilliantly presents the great romantic idea behind this symphony. The result - not least owing to the precision multichannel SACD technique and its rich detail - is lavish and lively listening pleasure.
