ERICH WOLFGANG KORNGOLD (1897-1957): Symphony in F Sharp, Op 40, Tänzchen im alten Stil.
Catalogue Number: 05M058
Reference: ODE 1182-2
Description: This makes the sixth currently available recording of the symphony, putting it almost squarely in the "standard rep" category. So that's not why this disc is here; it's here because the 1919 Tänzchen is a world premiere recording. A seven-minute piece of genteel and antique manner, charmingly scored for a small orchestra, it should interest Korngold completists. Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra; John Storgårds.
