Notes and Editorial Reviews

As part of Decca's acclaimed Entartete (German for Degenerate) series devoted to either suppressed or forbidden music during the first half of the 20th century, Korngold's notorious Opera Das Wunder der Heliane composed in 1927 recieves its premier recording here. Korngold's ravishing orchestration heightens the combination of mystical, erotic, religious and philosophical themes that abound throughout the piece. All interested with music in particular and the arts in general of this period this will certainly find much to enjoy here.
