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.

Korngold’s Much Ado About Nothing Suite has remained popular for its expressivity, humour and robust good spirits.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2009


“Philippe Quint… has produced one of the most persuasive and empathetic recordings of the Korngold Violin Concerto in the catalogue. His seductive tone captivates from the first note, his quicksilver virtuosity suits the piece to perfection, and he gives the work precisely the shaded, bittersweet magic it deserves.”

Gramophone Magazine

August 2009

“Quint's performance rivals even Heifetz. His range of tone is subtle in its extreme contrasts, his phrasing is warmly expressive without ever tipping over into sentimentality or self-indulgence, and his sparkling performance of the finale matches his achievement in the lyrical movements. ...equally compelling is the playing of the Mexican orchestra under Carlos Miguel Prieto, another rising young star.”

The Telegraph

10th June 2009


“This performance by Philippe Quint and the Mexican orchestra relishes its full-blooded lyricism and the finale’s energy.”
