Ole Schmidt, conductor, composer

Ole Schmidt is best known internationally as a conductor, but he is also a highly productive composer who has worked in every genre. Though his approach is eclectic, he has a basis in the Neoclassical tradition. His predilection for rhythmic drive and jazz-inspired harmony makes his music attractive to listen to.

Fine performance (American Record Guide)

Ole Schmidt’s output is intriguing, and he has a deadpan humour.(Gramophone)

All the performances are of course definitive. Let’s hope another Dacapo release is planned to showcase Schmidt’s multiple talents.(Fanfare)
