Ole Schmidt, composer

Copenhagen Wind Quintet

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)

Recorded at "MARIOT", France, in July 1994 and April 1995

Recording producer: Jørgen Bramming
Sound engineer: Jørgen Bramming
