Franz Schmidt was an Austrian composer who studied composition under Bruckner, was a cellist from 1896 to 1914 in the
Court Opera and the Vienna Philharmonic, where Mahler admired his playing, and also played in a string quartet led by
Oskar Adler, a close friend of Arnold Schoenberg. You can probably tell by all this what his influences were.
