Franz Schmidt (1874 - 1939) was an Austro-Hungarian composer, whose reputation has been tarnished by his alleged sympathies with the Nazi regime (which were not entirely clear by the way). In addition, he is often dismissed as an anachronism, stcking to a late romantic style. In reality, there are plenty of more modern influences in his works. His oeuvre includes four substantial symphonies, chamber music, an oratorio, organ music and two operas (Wikipedia).
Some recommended works: symphony 4, the oratorio Das Buch mit sieben Siegeln, the string quartets, the clarinet quintets and the Variations on a Hussar Song for orchestra. A good starting CD would be the combination of his fourth symphony and Variations on a Hussar Song on a Naxos disc (Amazon link).
