  • Franz Schmidt - Symphony No.1 in E-major

    45:40

    Picture: rocky mountains by andreewallin-d5mbphm

    Franz Schmidt (22 December 1874 -- 11 February 1939) was an Austrian composer, cellist and pianist.

    Work: Symphony No.1 in E-major (1899) scored for Piccolo, 2 Flutes, 2 Oboes (English Horn), 2 Clarinets, 3 Bassoons (3rd also Contrabassoon), 4 Horns, 3 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, Strings.

    Mov.I: Sehr langsam - Sehr lebhaft 00:00
    Mov.II: Langsam 11:40
    Mov.III: Schnell und leicht 23:09
    Mov.IV: Lebhaft, doch nicht zu schnell 34:44

    Orchestra: Malmö Symphony Orchestra

    Conductor: Vassily Sinaisky

    Written in 1896 at age 22. The scherzo of this precociously accomplished symphony (which shows a mature absorption of Bruckner and Richard Strauss) is especially noteworthy, while Schmidt demonstrates his contrapuntal skills in the Finale.

    Picture: ???

    Franz Schmidt (22 December 1874 -- 11 February 1939) was an Austrian composer, cellist and pianist.

    Work: Symphony No.3 in A-major (1928) scored for flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani and a large string section.

    Mov.I: Allegro molto moderato 00:00
    Mov.II: Adagio 16:00
    Mov.III: Scherzo: Allegro vivace - Molto più tranquillo 26:28
    Mov.IV: Lento - Allegro vivace 37:55

    Orchestra: Malmö Symphony Orchestra

    Conductor: Vassily Sinaisky

    A sunny, melodic work in the Schubert vein (although its lyricism and superb orchestration do much to conceal the fact that it is one of the composer's most harmonically advanced works). Winner of the Austrian section of the 1928 International Columbia Graphophone Competition, it enjoyed some popularity at the time.

  • Franz Schmidt: Fuga Solemnis für orgel, 16 Holzblasinstrumenten und Schlagzeug

    13:58

    Malmo Symphony Orchestra conducted by / Orquesta Sinfónica de Malmö dirigida por Vassily Sinnaisky. Organ/órgano: Anders Johansson.

    Franz Schmidt was one of Vienna’s most influential composers between the end of 19th Century and during the first decade of the 20th Century. Although his style became gradually outdated after WW1, his music was still held in high esteem. One of such examples was the Fuga Solemnis, a contrapuntal essay for organ and wind-brass orchestra, composed in 1937. The piece alone is a marvelous example of neo-baroque music in Teutonic style, culminating in a virtuoso display both for organ and orchestra. However and in spite of its anti-partisan nature, it was soon politicized as music in a pretentious cantata named “Germany’s Ressurrection” after the Anchluss.

    Franz Schmidt fue uno de los compositores más influyentes de Viena entre fines del siglo 19 y la primera década del siglo 20. Aunque su estilo se volvió gradualmente anticuado tras la Primera Guerra, su música aún era muy estimada. Uno de esos ejemplos fue la Fuga Solemnis, un ejemplo contrapuntístico para órgano y orquesta de alientos, compuesta en 1937. La pieza es un ejemplo maravilloso de música neo-barroca en estilo Teutón, culminando en un despliegue de virtuosismo para órgano y orquesta. No obstante y a pesar de su naturaleza anti-política, pronto fue politizada como música en la pretenciosa cantata “La resurrección alemana” tras el Anchluss.
