E. W. Korngold is chiefly known as one of the greatest of Hollywood film scorers.For his first 40 years, however, he wrote concert hall music, and even after he had ‘sold his soul to the film studios’, Korngold continued to write late‐Romantic art music, his 1945 Violin Concerto marking a significant return to this genre.The Violin Sonata, completed when Korngold was just 16 years old, refers to the later work in several ways.Violinist Kristóf Baráti, no stranger to Brilliant Classics, is joined by players from the philharmonie zuidnederland under Otto Tausk, with Gábor Farkas at the piano.
