Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The name Korngold is associated above all with large-scale works, particularly operas and film music. However, the composer also wrote various chamber works during the course of his career. Korngold never refined himself stylistically or intellectually in works for smaller ensembles. Instead, he preferred to expand the resources at hand so much that he lacked nothing, with the result that even works such as the string quintet performed here often sounded positively orchestral.

"The Second and Third Quartets of Erich Wolfgang Korngold have to rank among his very finest works. I use the phrase "have to" because they share a somewhat obscure history, and this excellently performed and recorded album should go a long way toward correcting that injustice."-ARG
