Much admired today as a pioneer of film music, Erich Korngold was a precociously talented composer of concert and chamber music, opera and stage works, as his Schauspiel Overture, written when he was only fourteen, shows. The phenomenal success of his Violin Concerto, an ultra-romantic masterpiece drawing themes from his scores for the films Another Dawn, Anthony Adverse and The Prince and the Pauper, has overshadowed much of his other music, though his Much Ado About Nothing Suite has remained popular for its expressivity, humour and robust good spirits.


   




Review By John Fleming,St. Petersburg Times,December 2009

The Violin Concerto is gloriously kitschy and overflowing with themes from Korngold’s movie scores, such as Juarez, Anthony Adverse and The Prince and the Pauper.

Review By David Denton, Naxos,June 2009

Written in that period when Erich Korngold tried to reignite his career as a symphonic composer, the Violin Concerto today stands as his only work in the concert repertoire. The establishment’s dislike of the precocious young Austrian genius that sold himself for pieces of gold to the Hollywood film industry is well documented. It was unforgiving and spurned reconciliation that he attempted in the late 1940’s. The concerto, however, had Jascha Heifetz as its champion, his recording still the work’s benchmark and also one of his personal highlights. In fact it was a pastiche work based on film music he had written, and is rather sentimental in the romantic mood of the slow movement, the finale a virtuoso romp in the mood of Americana for its finale,
