Notes & Reviews:

Released in the 50th anniversary year of his death, this disc is one of a collection of four Korngold titles released this month. Conducted by Edward Downes, the BBC Philharmonic performs with enthusiasm and sensitivity. These are richly inventive and brilliantly scored works, sadly neglected but making a welcome return, and at the first time on Chandos Classics.

The Times
Korngold's lush orchestration needs sound with a full bloom, and the Chandos engineers provide that in spades.
