Notes and Editorial Reviews

Florent Schmitt was one of the most original and influential French composers of his time. His music shimmers with luxuriant melodies, good humour and a fearless harmonic vocabulary. This second of four volumes is filled with innovation and stylistic bravura, from the remarkable variety to be found in Sur cinq notes to the balletic poetry of Reflets d’Allemagne.
