Erich Wolfgang Korngold - Violin Recital: Joseph Lin. Laureate series -
Violin. Naxos 8.557067.

Together with Mozart, Mendelssohn, Busoni and Enescu, Erich Wolfgang Korngold
was a notable prodigy as a composer. Born in Brünn (now Brno) on 29th May 1897,
the second son of the music critic Julius Korngold, he impressed Mahler with his
music when he was only nine, and consolidated this with the score for the
ballet-pantomime Der Schneemann (The Snowman), first given at the Vienna Court

culminating with the dual première in 1920 in Hamburg and Cologne of his opera
Die tote Stadt (The Dead City) (Naxos 8.660060-61). The work brought him
international fame at the age of 23. The success of his next opera Das Wunder
der Heliane (The Miracle of Heliane) was blighted, however, by the worsening

Anschluss, the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany.

In 1934 Korngold moved to Hollywood at the invitation of Max Reinhardt.
There he embarked on a series of film scores over the next decade, including
Captain Blood (1935) (Marco Polo 8.223607), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
and King's Row (1941), bringing his music to an audience of millions. After
the Second World War Korngold returned to the concert hall, but, apart from a
Violin Concerto (Naxos 8.553579), championed by Jascha Heifetz, his effulgent
late-Romantic style found little favour in post-war Europe, and his death on
19th November 1957 attracted little attention. Recent decades,
