Notes and Editorial Reviews

Florent Schmitt remains one of the most important and influential French composers of the twentieth century. Although he wrote successfully in almost all forms except opera, he was by training a formidable pianist and his writing for the instrument is colourful, bold and harmonically dextrous. Schmitt was also an inveterate traveller and this permeates his poetic and Romantic Feuillets de voyage (Travel Pages), Op 26 whilst Musiques foraines (Carnival Music) Op 22 reveals Schmitt the festive humorist.
