The music of the Czech-born Viennese composer Egon Kornauth (1891–1959) was once a staple of Austrian concert-halls, though it has largely been forgotten in the half-century since his death. In this pioneering recording Jonathan Powell uncovers the many strands that fed into Kornauth’s rich and full-blooded soundworld – dark, late-Romantic harmony, inventive counterpoint, rhythmic assiduity, a fondness for folk-music and, not least, a straightforward melodic charm.

"... This is a fascinating disc 9as we are beginning to expect from Toccata Classics). The recording (made at Durham University, UK) is excellent."

Colin Clarke - Fanfare - September/October 2013


"... The disc as a whole is evidently the product of significant painstaking endeavour on the part of Powell, who is to be congratulated for bringing this usic to our attention for the first time ..."

Mark Tanner - International Record Review - September 2013
