Notes & Reviews:
The Korngold Project contributes to the rediscovery of this music. This disc features recordings of two of Korngold's pre-War chamber works. The first, the Piano Trio in D major, op. 1, was written between 1909 and 1910. The second work recorded on this disc is the Suite for Two Violins, Cello, and Piano (left hand), op. 23, written in 1930. What is remarkable in this recording is the journey the musicians undertook to record the works they so dearly love. They all represent different nationalities and met in South Africa for performances in Africa's most prominent chamber music festival. Such was the success of their virgin Korngold performances that they vowed to travel the world to complete the Korngold project. And so they embarked of a journey that included rehearsing in Berlin, performing in Oxford and finally concertizing and recording in South Africa.
