Bruckner Orchester Linz, Ladies of the Linz Mozart Choir, Caspar Richter

“polished and affectionate performance of the delightful suite Korngold drew from his 1918 incidental score to a Vienna Burgtheater production of Much Ado about Nothing. They include the fragrant (and previously unrecorded) 'Garden Music' that opens Act 3, the haunting main theme of which Korngold subsequently incorporated into the third movement of his violin and piano arrangement (beloved of such legendary fiddlers as Heifetz, Kreisler, Elman and Seidel).
Other rarities include the first recording of the Op 32 Prayer for tenor, female choir and organ, as well as a long-overdue digital successor to Charles Gerhardt's pioneering RCA performance of Tomorrow, a six-minute work for mezzo-soprano, female choir and orchestra, originally written for the 1943 film The Constant Nymph.
Another first recording is the orchestral version of 'Nachtwanderer' from the six Einfache Lieder.
Korngold orchestrated these songs in 1917, and in this guise most of the rest of the set has been recorded by Barbara Hendricks on EMI. Six years later, in 1923, Korngold orchestrated his masterly Abschiedslieder of 1920, whose demandingly wide-ranging melodic lines occasionally strain the otherwise appealing mezzo here, Gigi Mitchell-Velasco. That apart, these consistently communicative performances – captured in decent, truthfully balanced sound – arouse nothing but praise. A must for all Korngold fans.”

Tanzlied des Pierrot from Die tote Stadt, Op. 12


Detlef Hahn (violin), Andrew Ball (piano)

“This is an indispensable disc gathering together the complete works for violin and piano – all superbly performed – including no fewer than three world-premiere recordings.
The disc opens with the remarkably early, but emotionally mature, Violin Sonata in D – a ravishing work that ranks among Korngold's major compositions. The Sonata is lyrical and expansive and has all the characteristics of Korngold's melodic and harmonic idiom – there's certainly nothing apprentice about this piece. Hahn and Ball give a beautifully crafted performance indeed and have truly absorbed the essence of this masterly score.
Korngold's suite of incidental music for MuchAdo About Nothing has enjoyed a certain amount of currency in its original orchestral version, but less so in Korngold's own arrangement for violin and piano heard here. The transition works marvellously, being ideally suited to the intimacy of chamber music. The second movement, 'Dogberry and Verges', a grotesque march depicting the two drunken night-watchmen, pays passing homage to Korngold's childhood idol Gustav Mahler, and elsewhere in the suite there are constant intimations of the film scores of later years.
The remainder of the disc is devoted to smaller arrangements of works, including two extracts from the opera Die tote Stadt and one from DasWunder der Heliane as well as the gorgeous song setting Sonett für Wien (In Memoriam), Op 41, the theme of which Korngold also used in the 1946 film Escape Me Never. The sound recording is excellent.”
