Hear the Japanese premiere of KorngoldÂ´s violinconcerto op. 35 and a brandnew recording of the MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING-SUITE, performed by Hidehiro Tokitsu

The Japanese biographer of Korngold, our firend Takashi Hayasaki, found out that this performance in 1989 (!) was announced as Japanese premiere then. Publisher Schott has an office in Tokyo so that we may believe this as such, performed by Hidehiro Tokitsu, the Kyusyu S.O. cond. by Honje Kim.
