By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Dec. 2005
Format: Audio CD
This disc provides four sets of selections from Korngold’s legendary film scores. That suits me for one better than the scores in their entirety, and I like the way the production has been done, with each set of extracts played without intermissions (although there are separate tracks for the individual episodes). Korngold’s film music is all about effect so far as I’m concerned, and enough of a good thing is enough, especially when the transitions between the separate extracts are arranged as skilfully and smoothly as they are here. Korngold’s style fitted the epics of the 30’s and 40’s to perfection – it was his natural style, he didn’t adapt that as William Alwyn did, and he didn’t follow models but was the model himself, starting with Captain Blood in 1935. It was as if someone had invented a glove because he liked the shape of it, and found out that it was perfectly suited to being worn on the hand.
The liner-notes that come with the disc are admirable. Previn contributes a short and lucid introduction giving us his general view of Korngold and of film music. The majority of the material is from the authoritative source of Brendan G. Carroll, providing a more detailed commentary on the four film scores separately. These are given in the chronological order of the films, whereas the scores are not, in case anyone needs to know that. Previn suits me down to the ground as an interpreter of music like this. He had an exceptionally adept touch with scores that are thick-textured and lyrical, something I found many years ago in his Brahms readings, and which you will find in his recording of the German Requiem from 2000, one year prior to the present disc.

Interesting pieces. Only MP3 download purchased. Some tracks have an unpleasant ending (some sort of engineering problem I expect). Was surprised that the Prince & the Pauper provided a principal theme to Korngold's Violin Concerto.

This is a fantastic CD for driving through the English countryside with the roof open! Very stirring. Bought because of the theme tune on Radio 4extra's serial of Dr Syn, by Russell Thorndike. Excellent selection.

Great music, severely under-rated by snobs. Great perfeormances, well -recorded and a very attractive presentation packaging. A good present to expand the mind of prejudiced twits.

I dont know much about classical music as I'm not an expert of classical music but to enjoy this you don't have to be. As a child (I'm 41) I remember watching the old Errol Flynn movies from the 1930's and loved the music scores as much as the movies they were written for.
If you've not heard of Korngold or of his music then buy this and I promise you will not be disappointed!, and with Andre Previn at the helm of the London Symphony Orchestra you could not do better.
So if your stuck for a great present for dad this could be the one.
