Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc offers four works, from several of Korngold's periods, including the 'Cello Concerto', an adaptation of a short piece Korngold composed in 1946 for the film 'Deception' and here performed by Peter Dixon. Dixon plays with elegance and a lyric understatement needed for this work. 'First-rate playing and opulent, well-balanced recording. Well worth exploring.' - The Penguin Guide, 3 stars This disc offers four works, from several of Korngold's periods, including the 'Cello Concerto', an adaptation of a short piece Korngold composed in 1946 for the film 'Deception' and here performed by Peter Dixon.
