Korngold: The Sea Hawk

Erich Wolfgang Korngold: 

The Sea Hawk (suite) 
Symphony in F-Sharp, Op. 40 
James DePreist, conductor 
Oregon Symphony
“The Symphony receives a particularly warm and beautiful interpretation. DePreist has a sympathetic feeling for contrasts of textures; the tempi are excellently judged and atmospheres powerful, with a vigorous sense of energy, tension and release. The Sea Hawk, though, is allowed to wallow. Particular poignancy is added through the presence of Korngold’s granddaughter Kathrin as a violinist member of the orchestra.
Performance: 5 (out of 5); Sound: 5 (out of 5)” – Jessica Duchen, BBC Music Magazine
