Notes & Reviews:

A fascinating new 18th century musical personality has emerged: Joseph Schmitt. Never heard of him? That's because, until relatively recently, many of his works were still being wrongly ascribed to Haydn. This world premiere recording documents one of the most exciting discoveries in classical music in recent times. Displaying Schmitt working in both the symphonic and chamber mediums, this disc presents a musical portrait of this multifaceted 18th century German-Dutch master composer. In bringing alive his music, the disc aims to profile Schmitt's rich, cosmopolitan musical language and to illustrate how he creates his own personal language out of the myriad of international musical influences, musical styles and musical dialects presented to him by the creative whirlwind that was the 18th century European enlightenment.
