Recordings of Korngold's symphony: I own them all--Previn, Welser-Most, Downes, Kempe. Which is the best? The Previn--like his Korngold film music recordings--is lush and ultimately disappointing. The Welser-Most is good, but Downes (who was filling in for Bamert) turns in what I think of as the standard recommendation, a lovely recording that doesn't miss the dark corners of the work. But the new Albrecht is very impressive and demands to be heard by all fans of this neglected symphony. This is no mere run-through; it is a carefully thought-out PERFORMANCE, filled with interesting ideas. The Strasbourg orchestra, of course, is not the Vienna Philharmonic, but have no fear, they sound just great. An excellent recording in every way; Korngold fans should not hesitate.

SACD/DSD Multi-Channel listening.

All the other reviews have commented on the gorgeous (Pentatone) sound, the interesting ideas, or other recordings that compete for our dollars. I truely believe that Marc Albrecht has shown every competing recording that an excellent conductor who fully exhibits great technical command as well as leadership from the podium...and total understanding of the compositions can have the final outcome surpass all other recordings despite not having the Vienna Philharmonic at his disposal. Hey, this orchestra proves itself worthy of any music; just listen to the precise intonation, attacks, releases, and individual balances obtained and performed by a band of excellent musicians attuned to every nuance demanded of the music and by their conductor.

The sound is glorious, especially in full (SACD) 5.0 surround sound, but the understanding of the music by Maestro Albrecht makes this a total experience not to be missed by any Korngold fan. The music is, by itself, wonderfully exciting, but that it all seems to come together in a single complete package is a remarkable feat by any conductor, orchestra, and recording specialists. Previn and Downes (I own these too) each have their own ideas, but Marc Albrecht seems to have not just ideas...but answers.

BRAVO Pentatone for giving us a superb disc.

The rehabilitation of Korngold as a serious composer was something he deeply wished for but never attained when he died, an exile in Hollywood, in 1957 at age sixty. A decade later some milestone recordings by Charles Gerhardt brought Kongold's classic film scores into prominence, and once the ball got rolling, Korngold reached full rehabilitation, I would say, with Decca's series devoted to music banned by the Nazis (accused of being decadent, or Entartete Musik), which gave us his three operas, while DG and others filled in with almost the whole of his output. I can imagine Korngold having the last laugh, wherever he is now, to see the popularity of his Violin Concerto, which occasioned the famous jibe at its premiere, "More corn than gold," from the New York Sun's critic, Irving Kolodin.

The Symphony in F sharp was a particularly painful failure for the composer. It took five years to write in the immediate postwar (1947-52) and was premiered in 1954 on Austrian Radio, by all accounts an inadequate performance. Mitropoulos was excited but died before he ever got around to performing it. Despite some European radio broadcasts, the concert premiere occurred as late as 1972 in Munich, under rodolf Kempe, by which time the composer had long since died. The story arc ends in melancholy triumph, but Kolodin wasn't wrong about the presence of corn and gold in Korngold's output, A survey of 3,000 recent European radio broadcasts reveals 11 concerts that featured the Violin Cto. but none containing the symphony (Korngold produced only one, along with a Sinfonietta, also not performed).

I like tis new version by Marc Albreecht because ii is splashy in a Hollywood kind of way, and it is delivered in gorgeous sound.
