Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc is devoted to the adolescent compositions of Erich Wolfgang Korngold - this would not normally excite great interest but there is nothing normal about this prodigious talent. The BBC Philharmonic provides stunning performances of two orchestral excerpts from the opera, 'Violanta'. 'The Snowman', is a sheer delight and is coupled with the 'Overture to a Darma' - the ultimate in sumptuous orchestration. '...exemplary performances from Matthias Bamert and the BBC Philharmonic.' - Barry Millington for The Times This disc is devoted to the adolescent compositions of Erich Wolfgang Korngold - this would not normally excite great interest but there is nothing normal about this prodigious talent.
