Korngold: Much Ado about Nothing - Sinfonietta (2016)

Korngold

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra

John Storgards

Erich Wolfgang korngold ranks securely among the principal composer prodigies. Born in Brünn, Moravia (now Brno, Czech Republic) on 29 May 1897, the second son of music critic Julius Korngold, he impressed Mahler with his cantata Gold when only nine and went on to consolidate this with a score for the ballet-pantomime Der Schneeman, premiered at the Vienna Court opera in 1910. Numerous orchestral, chamber and operatic works followed – including such ambitious pieces such as the Schauspiel-Ouvertu?re (1911), the Sinfonietta (1912), and an operatic double-bill that comprised Der Ring des Polykrates (1914) and Violanta (1915) – culminating with the dual premiere (in Hamburg and Cologne) of his opera Die tote Stadt (1920) which made him world famous at the age of only 23. However, the success of his next opera – the highly ambitious Das Wunder der Heliane (1927) was to be blighted by the deteriorating political situation, while his last opera Die Kathrin (1938) could not even be heard in Vienna on account of Austria’s Anschluss with Germany.

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra

The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the oldest professional symphony orchestra in the Nordic countries, was founded as the Helsinki Orchestral Society by the young Robert Kajanus, its first Chief Conductor, in 1882. Well known today for its tradition of performing Sibelius, it also premiered many of his major works, often with the composer himself conducting. The orchestra undertook its first foreign tour to the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1900, and since then it has visited most European countries, in addition to visiting the USA and Japan, both on four occasions. 
The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Ondine have maintained a long-standing exclusive partnership with, among others, an edition of the complete Sibelius symphonies under the direction of Leif Segerstam (ODE 1075-2Q). The new Chief Conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra from autumn 2008 will be violinist and conductor John Storgårds, who has been the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor since 2003.
