Notes & Reviews:

Berthold Goldschmidt built an enviable reputation as a composer and conductor, studying with Franz Schreker and acting as assistant to Erich Kleiber. With the arrival of the Nazis Goldschmidt fled to England where he continued to compose and conduct. However he, like many others, was never able to successfully navigate the BBC, which to a great extent determined the success and standing of a composer. However, Goldschmidt did conduct the BBC orchestras during the 1950s and was quite well received. His music is now being rediscovered, thanks to the efforts of Odaline de la Martinez and Simon Rattle.
