Jeanne d'ArcAalborg Symphony OrchestraErling Møldrup,
composer & conductorAbout:
Ole Schmidt is best known as a conductor, but has written a large number of works since his debut in 1955. His musical roots are not only in Neo-Classicist like Kindemith and Stavinsky, but also in the playful freedom of jazz. Ole Schmidt composed the music for Carl Theodor Dreyer's world-famous silent movie The Passion of Jeanne d'Arc
(1927) at the request of the Hollywood producer Anett Wolf. The music was premiered in Los Angeles in 1983.
