Making his debut on Chandos, Sakari Oramo, who with the BBC Symphony Orchestra this year has championed new and rarely performed works, presents in surround sound the extravagant musical world of Florent Schmitt.

The recording follows two exceptional Barbican performances with the same forces, a ‘sensuous and exotic’ Antoine et Cl?op?tre, according to the Financial Times (2016), and the first performance for nearly a dozen years of Symphony No. 2 (2017).

The Second Symphony, the last major work by Schmitt, has nothing valedictory about it: as lavish and rhythmically sophisticated as his earlier music, emphatically bounding in fast passages and supple in slow, it also encompasses all the different musical expressions and styles that he had used over almost eight decades of composing. On the other hand, it is far from being an ‘old man’s piece’. ‘It is really exuberant — very, very inventive, and incredibly busy for everyone’, as Sakari Oramo explained in a BBC Radio 3 interview.

The symphony is paired with the two orchestral suites from Antoine et Cl?op?tre, music written for Shakespeare’s play, premiered in 1920 at the Paris Op?ra, and very rarely recorded since then.
