Franz Schmidt: Notre Dame / Gwyneth Jones, James King, Kurt Moll

Album Summary

>Schmidt, Franz : Notre Dame
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This world premiere recording of Schmidt's Notre Dame is dominated not by Paris or Quasimodo, but by Esmeralda, played by Gwyneth Jones. She is the center of the stories which make up the plot and the Esmeralda motif is the principal theme of the opera.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Schmidt's Notre Dame has been kept alive by one famous orchestral extract, the gorgeous intermezzo from Act 1. They're often charming and never discordant. I've heard more sensuous performances of the intermezzo.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Jesus-Christus-Kirche, Berlin (08/1988).
