Five important compositions of Florent Schmitt to be featured in the upcoming 2017/18 concert season by orchestras in Cleveland, Guanajuato, London, Lyon, Milwaukee and Paris.

The international Bachtrack website is in the process of uploading its global database of classical music programs for the upcoming season.

Although it isn’t an exhaustive listing of every orchestral group, the site covers nearly all of the major orchestras, opera and ballet companies and other important ensembles around the world, making it the “go-to” resource for information about what’s happening on the concert calendar.

The 2017/18 season is now coming into focus – and yet even at this early date we see that five important compositions by Florent Schmitt will be presented by orchestras in Cleveland, Guanajuato, London, Lyon, Milwaukee and Paris conducted by Lionel Bringuier, Jonathan DarlingtonFabien Gabel, Daniel Myssyk and Sakari Oramo.
