    Default Wonderful performance of Franz Schmidt's "Das Buch mit sieben Siegeln"



    This is a wonderful performance of a relatively little-known work by the fine Austro-Hungarian composer Franz Schmidt. It sets texts from the Book of Revelations for a large orchestra, chorus, soloists and organ. Everyone involved plays and sings superbly, a delight from beginning to end.

    The sound quality in the video is first-class, clear and well-extended. There are no subtitles of the original German text, but in the Download Booklet link at https://www.chandos.net/products/catalogue/CHAN%205061 you will find the text and an english translation.

    Schmidt's musical style is original and in a late Romantic style, with underlying influences of Bruckner, Reger and Bach: an exuberant Magyar spicy element occasionally erupts too. Recommended!
