Toller Überblick zu Korngolds reichhaltigem Schaffen - von den frühvollendeten Kompositionen des Wunderkinds bis zu den reifen Werken des etablierten Filmkomponisten. Tragisch, dass sein Oeuvre nicht mehr gewürdigt (und aufgeführt) wird! Die Interpretationen sind allesamt top.

Not the complete works, but a nice representative sampling. Best known for his outstanding work for Hollywood, Korngold also composed a number of works for symphony orchestra. The pieces here range in style from traditional Romanticism to mid-Twentieth Century modernism. "Baby Serenade" is a real stand-out, "serious" music that features the saxophone in a solo role.

Fine performances, well recorded, wonderful music.2010年9月8日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Although I had seen The Adventures of Robin Hood earlier and enjoyed the music without being especially aware of who had composed it, I first heard of Korngold in connection with his movie scores in the early 1970s and bought the wonderful RCA records of excerpts from several scores. I have been a fan since then. I bought the superb Heifitz recording of the Violin Concerto and have continued to buy film scores, chamber, symphonic, piano, and whatever other music by Korngold I could find since then. I bought this set even though I had over half the works in other recordings already. But these are fine recordings of excellent performances, many of them preferable to other recordings I have, and often reminiscent of Korngold's own recordings of his music. That is to say, these performances resemble more Korngold's performances of the soundtracks for the films he scored whereas some of the other recordings I own don't resemble the kind of performances that Korngold himself conducted. The only major orchestral work that I own other performances of that is not included is the violin concerto and there are several other performances of that which are readily available. More than one full CD of music is not otherwise available. I recommend this set without reservation.
If there's any hope for the modern symphony orchestra, it's in film music, and you can see how modern film music began in this one compilation. Not that Dmitri Shostakovich and others did not contribute importantly to early cinema, but Erich Wolfgang Korngold is himself a unique bridge between Vienna and Hollywood. Here you will find his works square in the tradition of post-romantic symphonic music, informed by Mahler and Strauss yet having a unique and dramatic voice, which served him well as the war years relocated him to the United States and a long stint writing scores for film. This recording is an extensive 4-disc compilation with many higlights, and the sound quality is one more example of fine German engineering, although I'd prefer to be sitting a little closer to the stage as a matter of personal preference. This work is important for any serious fan of classical symphonic music or cinema soundtracks.
