“Ablaze with life, warmth and a sense of discovery, Ole Schmidt is a sure and penetrating guide, and his readings have an authentic ring to them, for he has real feeling for this glorious music” (Penguin Guide)

“The Inextinguishable and No.5 are amongst the best-paced on record, No.4 preferable to Karajan on DG… devastating account of SinfoniaSemplice (No.6) is surely Schmidt’s greatest achievement… no-one should jump to conclusions about this symphony before having heard the burning intensity Ole Schmidt brings to it” (Gramophone)
