Orchestra da Camera di Perugia; Schmitt, Christian

The present release presents three of the most well known and most performed concertos for oboe in the instrument’s repertoire. It is often said that the classical era is full of intrigue and mystery, and the history of music is no exception. However, time hides as much as it enlightens, and the ancient adage “Veritas filia Temporis” (Truth is the daughter of Time) often solves these riddles. Christian Schmitt studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Lyon and at the Musikhochschule Karlsruhe where he won top prizes. Then he improved his skill with renowned masters such as Thomas Indermühle, Maurice Bourgue, Paul Dombrecht and Heinz Holliger. In 1992 he was awarded first prize in music from the Fördergemeinschaft in Freiburg (European Cultural Foundation). During 20 years he performed as oboe soloist in Sinfonieorchester Basel and left it in 2012 to devote himself to the Stuttgart Musikhochschule’s class where he was appointed Professor in 2008, succeeding Prof. Ingo Goritzki. He is as the cutting age of contemporary creation for the oboe and several pieces have been written for him by different composers.
