About:
Ole Schmidt is best known internationally as a conductor, but he is also a highly productive composer who has worked in every genre.

Reviews

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)
