Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, April 2014
The Viennese musicians of the Aron Quartet meet the challenge of these complex and highly strung pieces head-on...These musicians were born to play Viennese cafe music reflected throughout the string of waltz tunes in the Intermezzo...In the Suite, the pianist Henri Sigfridsson commands attention from the start.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
[The Sextet] reveals the composer in adolescence, passionate and sensuous, agile in mood and tonality. The Viennese musiciaans of the Aron Quartet give it their all, helped by a full-bodied recording....The waltzing third movement is particularly engaging.

  • The next installment of Korngold chamber works from the Aron Quartett.
  • The Aron Quartett enjoyed well-deserved success with its cpo recording of the Erich Wolfgang Korngold String Quartets.
  • The two works recorded here - the String Sextet in D major op. 10 and the Suite op. 23 - are highly individual examples of Korngold's innovative approach to chamber music. The Sextet is the work of a wunderkind, the Suite the work of a more mature composer.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Sound and performances are both grade A. There are several recordings of the Sextet available. It's a buyer's market - the performance mentioned above is also terrific. I prefer this one because of its coupling with the Suite.
