Although there're some negative reviews here and there (production, singing of the tenor, acting) a sure buy for me.

Glad to see an important work of Korngold get a new release. I suppose most people, at least in the past, got to know his name through his Hollywood music. For me it was initially through the Violin Concerto.

What I am waiting for, and have been for some time, is a new CD of one of Korngold's film scores. One of the US speciality film labels - I can't remember which - stated it was planning to issue a soundtrack a while ago. So far nothing.

I am hoping it might be the original soundtrack of Juarez, gorgeous music from start to finish (it was released in Europe on the Tsunami label on a good sounding CD - but not officially in the USA), or Of Human Bondage which never has had a release but which, Tsunami, was supposed to be releasing many years ago. The label disappeared.

One lives in hope.

William Stromberg started the Tribute Film Classics label, I think it was around 2008, and recorded The Prince and the Pauper (Moskou Symphony orch., under William Stromberg). Probably the label left the scene. They were very ambitious with Korngold, Steiner and the like.

Agree, a titbit of Juarez is on this double CD: Juarez Overture, 1939 & Captain Blood [rec. J.Morgan]
Brandenburger Philharmoniker, Potsdam, Richard Kaufman - MARCO POLO 8.223607/8;DDD

An 'Extended Suite' of On Human Bondage is on RCA 87890 - National Philharmonic orchestra olv Charles Gerhardt.
