The Classical Reviewer

November 2016

“Benjamin Schmid with the Oulu Symphony Orchestra under Johannes Gustavsson provide first rate performances of these two very fine concertos”

Gramophone Magazine

January 2017

“Not a lost masterpiece but a sturdy work with individual touches.”

Classical Ear


“There are some lovely things, not least a soulfulness that goes beyond words – the slow movement is reminiscent of Shostakovich – and the finale is sustained in its vigour...Much excellence from Benjamin Schmid, accompanied alertly in Oulu, and the recording is naturally balanced.”
