Korngold’s incidental music for Shakespeare’s comedy Much Ado about Nothing, premiered in Vienna in 1920, enjoyed instant success and soon spread round the world in a series of arrangements that are still performed today. But the music has not been heard as Korngold intended since that first production. For this recording, made in conjunction with its fully staged US premiere, Korngold’s complete score was reconstructed from the original Viennese materials and is played here by the chamber-orchestral forces for which it was written.

"... The cast reads its lines competently in a literate American accent, rather than, say. Old Vic English. Like the original, the orchestra uses only 19 players, but under Mauceri’s expert hands, balances are fine, with good playing."

"... beautifully played."
Tim Ashley - The Guardian - 9 August 2013

"... all in all this was a really was a very worthwhile project that enhances our understanding of Korngold’s burgeoning gifts as a composer for the stage - and ultimately the screen.
