It must have been some seven years ago that I first discovered the music of Erich Wolfgang Korngold and I remember feeling absolutely overjoyed. While there was a time when he was mostly known as a composer for film, Korngold was in fact one of the most prodigious composers who ever lived, having already composed an imposing body of music in all genres before the cinema was even invented.

I knew that when doing a Korngold album I didn’t just want to feature his piano works, but rather present a bigger picture of his composing career. That is why this album features original music for the piano along with my own transcriptions of Korngold’s dramatic music from his operas and film scores. Together I hope they create a portrait of one of my favorite composers, someone who managed to bridge the gap between ‘serious’ and ‘light’ music like no other.

Ramon van Engelenhoven, Piano
