Happy Birthday Erich Wolfgang Korngold

Unread post by brendangcarroll » Mon May 29, 2017 12:17 am

Good morning Nitratevillians!

Today marks the 120th birthday of Erich Wolfgang Korngold.

So what better way to mark this landmark than by listening to him play the piano as only he could?

Here he is, recorded in August 1950 in Vienna, playing the Epilog from his Fairy Tale Pictures Opus 3, composed at the age of 12.

Best wishes

Brendan Carroll.
