  1. Wonderful! It’s about time that this great composer began to get the attention he so richly deserves.

    I’ve been campaigning on his behalf since 1970, but have been met with persistent resistance from all sources; “I have and hold, let me sleep” seems to be the attitude among performers and listeners alike.

    • Thank you for the kind words, Mr. Laibman. Yes, today Florent Schmitt’s music is getting far more attention than in past decades. And it’s easy to understand why: His compositions are rich, substantive, highly inventive — in short, one of the greatest legacies left to us by any French composer.
