Schmidt: The Book With Seven Seals Receives Díapason D’or Award

Schmidt Diapason D'or

Our new Schmidt: The Book With Seven Seals; Symphony No. 4 release in celebration of Franz Schmidt’s 150th Anniversary has recived a Díapason D’or distinction from Díapason Magazine!

“SOMM offers two ultimate masterpieces of Franz Schmidt in two historic engravings… It is [Rudolf Moralt and the Vienna Symphony’s] reading of warm lyricism  and poignant emotion [in Symphony No. 4] which is rendered to us here in a superior restoration by Lani Spahr. … this first version remains as touching as it is endearing. … The Book With Seven Seals oratorio remains Schmidt’s best known work. … [Julius] Patzak’s striking incantation and the ecstatic choral Alleluia more than justify the listening.”
