Description:

He studied under Massenet and Fauré at the Paris Conservatory and was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome in 1900. Florent Schmidt (1870-1958) was an excellent pianist and a Wagner enthusiast. His works have a style all their own, and his orchestrations with exquisite brushwork strongly influenced later composers. This "Antony and Cleopatra" is dramatic music with ballet scenes between acts, and it is said that Ida Rubinstein (the dancer who later commissioned "Bolero" from Ravel), who danced the role of Cleopatra when it was performed at the Paris Opera in 1920, charmed the audience with her mysterious appearance. In this suite, Schmidt himself selected famous scenes after the premiere and added exciting music. The music is richly colored, blending impressionistic sounds with a fiery intensity reminiscent of Richard Strauss.The Ghost House" was inspired by a poem by Edgar Allan Poe that Mallarmé translated into French, and it is a mysterious work that is unmistakably Schmidt, accurately depicting the poem's enigmatic nuances. The Buffalo Philharmonic's deep tone is ideal for Schmidt's music. Naxos Japan
