Notes and Editorial Reviews

Although the music of Karl Goldmark eventually fell into obscurity, the composer enjoyed a successful career during his life. Goldmark has been admired by some of the greatest names still remembered in music. Brahms was a personal friend of his, who believed that his Wedding Symphony was perfect in form, and Sir Thomas Beecham and Leonard Bernstein frequently conducted his music. Along with his Wedding Symphony, his output included other works that premiered to much acclaim such as his opera The Queen of Sheba, his outstanding violin concerto, and Overture to the Prometheus Bound of Aeschylus.
