Notes & Reviews:

When the Nazis invaded Austria in 1938, the connections established by Korngold at Warner Brothers not only guaranteed him a livelihood but also saved his life. Upon arriving in Hollywood, Korngold's first assignment was to adapt the music of Mendelssohn for Max Reinhardt's only American sound film, a spectacular production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream". This is the world premiere recording of this captivating film score.
