The son of a distinguished music critic, Erich Wolfgang Korngold is chiefly known as one of the greatest composers of Hollywood film scores; a man whose score for the 1938 Swashbuckler film The Adventures of Robin Hood, starring Errol Flynn, saved his life. For his first 40 years, however, he wrote music for the concert hall, and even after he had sold his soul to the film studios Korngold continued to write lateRomantic art music, his Violin Concerto marking a significant return to this genre in 1945. The music is wholly characteristic of the composers mature style: expansive, opulent and memorably melodic. The orchestration, too, is abundantly colourful and sensitive, with the virtuosity of the violin part coming to the fore particularly in the last movement. In the programme for the works premiere, Korngold wrote: [the work] was contemplated rather for a Caruso of the violin than for a Paganini how delighted I am to have my concerto performed by Caruso and Paganini in one person: Jascha Heifetz. The Violin Sonata predates the Concerto by about 30 years; completed when Korngold was just 16 years old, it refers to the later work in a number of ways, most notably through the composers penchant for wide intervals and the use of several of the themes which reveal Korngolds precocious craftsmanship and use of organic unity. Its inclusion on this release equates to a deft piece of programming, given that the work is in many ways the perfect companion piece to the Concerto.Violinist Kristóf Baráti is no stranger to Brilliant Classics, having appeared on no less than five recordings thus far. Following the release of his disc of Ysaÿes Sonatas (BC94678), Fanfare acknowledged his blazing technique and brilliant tone. As one of the most talented violinists of his generation, he has performed with the worlds major orchestras and collaborated alongside many esteemed conductors. He plays a 1703 Stradivari violin, the Lady Harmsworth, kindly loaned by the Stradivari Society. On this release Baráti is joined by players from the philharmonie zuidnederland under Otto Tausk, with Gábor Farkas at the piano.
