Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Chicagoans need little recommendation. Their sound is glorious and Chandos advocate it to us with all its damask lustre and density without rendering it opaque. In the Second Symphony there is a lot going on in that first movement which by the way is the one I would commend to someone who has never heard Schmidt before. The brass playing – the composer-specified eight horns, four trumpets - is of legendary splendour from 4.45 onwards in both the first and last movements." -- MusicWeb International [1/2009] Review of Chandos 9568 "The Chicagoans need little recommendation.
