About

The Dutch composer Leo Smit (1900-1943) was a Holocaust victim, not to be confused with the fine American composer-pianist Leo Smit. This set collects all the surviving music by the Dutch composer, most of which he hid away safely before being shipped with his harpist wife to an extermination camp.

Smitís composing personality has a wide range, but his most characteristic style owes much to Ravel (to whom he wrote an homage) and, often, to American jazz. Smitís chamber music has clear textures, firm rhythms, and a great deal of melodic and harmonic interest. His orchestral works are brilliantly scored, usually quite concise and effective.
