These two works, so eminently suited as concert partners, disappeared after Hitler came to power. Korngold and Schoenberg were both victimized for being ‘non-Aryan’ and their works were banned. Verklärte Nacht quickly reestablished itself, but the Korngold had to wait for its reappraisal until it was discovered in 1987 by The Raphael Ensemble, who gave its first public performance in the United Kingdom at The Purcell Room in London that year.
In this recording, two of the finest examples of the string sextet repertoire have been re-united. Stripped of all the surrounding intrigue, they can be enjoyed for what they truly represent—the very summit of late Austrian romanticism from Imperial Vienna, just before it finally disappeared for ever.

You might never want to go back to that slushy full string orchestra arrangement after you hear the Verklarte Nacht in its sextet assembly. The Raphael Ensemble give an outstanding account, coupled as it is with Korngold's opulent masterpiece, worlds away from the schmaltz of later years. The Helios reissue is a must have for the have nots.
