Richard Dyer
The Boston Globe, February 2002

"Early in the last century the young Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957) was acclaimed in his native Vienna as the greatest musical genius since Mozart. His opera 'Die tote Stadt,' composed when he was 23, went around the world. He fled from Hitler's Europe to America and wound up in Hollywood, where he won acclaim as the greatest of all composers for the movies. His success in Hollywood did not enhance his status as a concert and opera composer, although in recent years there has been a renewal of interest in his 'serious' music. There has probably never been a time when excerpts from Korngold's film scores have not been available, and Naxos has done a wonderful job of recording many of them complete."

BBC Music Magazine
