Adrian Edwards
Gramophone, March 2013

Over the years there have been a number of recordings in various guises from Korngold’s incidental music to Much Ado About Nothing but this is the first complete recording of all 14 movements…They make a most attractive sequence…An exuberant ‘Final Dance’, swinging to waltz time, brings the curtain down on this infectious concoction.

Korngold’s Sinfonietta, a symphony in all but name, is an astonishing piece for a 14‑year‑old, assured in structure as it is in its fecundity of tunes and glittering orchestration. The complex scoring and mood‑swings hold no qualms for the Helsinki Philharmonic who, under their conductor John Storgårds, offer a supremely confident performance that exudes all the charm, warmth and vitality with which this work abounds. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
