Catalogue Number: 09V043
Reference: CHSA 5220
Format: SACD hybrid
Description: Offered for the rather rare eight-minute Theme and Variations and the six-minute Straussiana, both from 1953 and both commissioned by the Association of American School Orchestras, but Korngold makes no concessions to youth in his writing. Straussiana also reflects his lifelong love of the music of Johann Strauss II. Sinfonia of London; John Wilson.
