Erich Korngold, who was born at Brno in 1897, was a remarkable child prodigy. "This assurance of style, this mastery of form, this characteristic expressiveness, this bold harmony, are truly astonishing!" said Richard Strauss.

Korngold's Piano Quintet in E, opus 15, was completed in 1921, just after the opera Die tote Stadt. He used the piece to experiment with many aspects of chamber music, not the least of which is extreme metrical flexibility, with no fewer than fifty four changes of time signature.

It has three movements:

1: Mäßiges Zeitmaß, mit schwungvoll blühendem Ausdruck
2: Adagio. Mit größter Ruhe, stets äußerst gebunden und ausdrucksvoll
3: Finale. Gemessen, beinahe pathetisch

The performers were

Vn 1. Boris Brovtsyn
Vn 2. Clara-Jumi Kang
Va. Gareth Lubbe
Vc. Torleif Thedéen
Pf. Eldar Nebolsin
