Philippe Quint (violin)
Orquesta Sinfónica de Mineria
Carlos Miguel Prieto

Much admired today as a pioneer of film music, Erich Korngold was a precociously talented composer of concert and chamber music, opera and stage works, as his Schauspiel Overture, written when he was only fourteen, shows.

The phenomenal success of his Violin Concerto, an ultra-romantic masterpiece drawing themes from his scores for the films Another Dawn, Anthony Adverse and The Prince and the Pauper, has overshadowed much of his other music.

Korngold’s Much Ado About Nothing Suite has remained popular for its expressivity, humour and robust good spirits.

“Philippe Quint is a wonderfully accomplished soloist.”
