Franz Schmidt was a cellist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra himself and he allowed the orchestra to premiere his symphony in 1913, which since then belongs in the orchestra’s main repertoire.
With Semyon Bychkov, they are a proven team to champion Schmidt’s Symphony…
The second symphony is the most brilliant and extroverted one with the largest instrumentation. The Strauss „Dreaming by the Fireside“ is a famous intermezzo from the same-named opera by Strauss.
On this album, the work is performed by The Strauss Orchestra.
