DIONYSIAQUES SCHMITT PDF

Composed: Florent Schmitt, like Berlioz a generation before him, was both a composer and a critic. In a time when many composers embraced Impressionism, his music, albeit influenced by Debussy, was admired for its energy, dynamism, grandeur, and virility, for its union of French clarity and German strength…[Many of his works] refuse lyrical abandon and sentimentality and are formed of a wilful and premeditated complexity as well as a passion for strong bold colours, violent emotions and extreme contrasts. Schmitt was considered a pioneer during his lifetime, rejected by some and embraced by others for a style that influenced and helped prepare for later innovations by Stravinsky, Ravel, Honegger and Roussel. Schmitt was born in Lorraine, near the German border.

Schmitt was considered a pioneer during his lifetime, rejected by some and embraced by others for a style that influenced and helped prepare for later innovations by Stravinsky, Ravel, Honegger and Roussel. Schmitt was born in Lorraine, near the German border.

His parents loved music and assiduously controlled what he listened to, steering him toward the Classical and German Romantic repertories. His father hoped he would become an organist. When Richard Strauss conducted his works at the Concerts Lamoureux in , Schmitt encountered a composer whose style he was soon to embrace.

His residency in Italy was followed by trips to Russa and North Africa. As in many orientalist works, Schmitt uses erotic dancing and hysteria as occasions for musical innovation.

Schmitt worked on the piece throughout , and in December completed Dionysiaques. After a wild flourish by the woodiwinds, the party begins as the music becomes a wildly exhuberent dance. Dionysiaques was not played until after World War I, during which time Schmitt wrote for chorus and military band.
