Erich Wolfgang Korngold 1897-1957

Korngold left around forty songs, composed between 1911 and 1952. This recording contains many first recordings, including songs transcribed from the manuscripts and performed here for the very first time. Although it belongs to the great German Romantic song tradition, Korngold’s style is nonetheless distinguished by its freedom of form and of poetic interpretation.

This title was released for the first time in 2002.
