Here is the definitive version of the works performed by BBC Philharmonic in brand new up-to-date packaging

It was Gramophone Editor’s Choice on first release and one of the BBC Music Magazine’s top 50 CDs of the year on original release

Digitally re-mastered at 24-bit

Composed when Korngold was only 14, the four-movement Sinfonietta, portrays a phenomenal expertise both in the organisation of musical ideas and in the handling of the orchestra: exquisitely orchestrated and crafted with an idiosyncrasy of harmony and rhythmic manipulation. Coupled with Sursum corda, an early virtuoso showpiece of extraordinary sumptuousness, reminiscent of Pines of Rome, some of it was later used as some of the material for Korngold’s score for Robin Hood for which he received an Academy Award.

Bamert’s performances of these compelling examples of Korngold’s early orchestral output were well received by the critics on the original release, and are welcomed onto the Classics label for the first time.

Quotes from original release:
Here are glorious performances of two of his early orchestral works.
BBC Music Magazine

Here the combination of Bamert’s supple shaping of the music, the BBC Philharmonic’s opulent playing and Chandos’ lustrous sound make for an experience that is both indulgent and satisfying.
BBC Music Magazine

Bamert’s performances of both works are beautiful, sensitive and sympathetic, never overstated but always full blooded.
BBC Music Magazine

…the Chandos recording is altogether superb in terms of definition and opulence. A ripely enjoyable disc of beautifully played performances, and a valuable addition to the catalogue, with the sumptuous sound-picture.
The Penguin Guide, 3 stars
