New Korngold Biography

Post by gwagner1000 » Mon Aug 20, 2007 2:53 pm

I'm pleased to cofirm the information concerning a new book on Erich Wolfgang Korngold: Musik ist Musik. This will be the first genuine biography in German since 1922 (R. St. Hoffmann)! The book will be issued by Matthes & Seitz Berlin for the Frankfurt Book Fair. See advertisement in German: ... agner.html
I'm particularly grateful to Bernd O. Rachold and Brendan G. Carroll for their spontaneous and generous help.
The book will be presented in Luxembourg on the 50th Anniversary of Korngold's death, on 29th November 2007, in the frame of a chamber music concert by the European Music Academy, directed by Jack Martin Händler. Programme: "Much ado for nothing" for violin and piano, Trio op.1 and Quintet op.15. See: ... nda_id=259
From end of October, on the last Sunday of each month at 8 p.m. I'll be doing a series of brodcasts on Luxembourg's cultural "Radio 100,7" giving a chronological survey of all Korngold's works available on record.
Hope these news will rejoice the Korngold Community.
Guy Wagner
