New project - Korngold & Zeisl

A recording of the Violin Sonata by the last “child-prodigy” Erich Wolfgang Korngold, combined with the rarely heard Brandeis Sonata by his close friend Erich Zeisl is being released by Johannes Fleischmann and Magda Amara in 2019.

The rise of National Socialism forced both Austrian composers to flee from their home country because of their Jewish faith. After detours they found their new home in California. Their paths were quite different. Korngold celebrated his classical works and his revolutionary big successes in American film music as well as two Academy Awards (Oscars) for his compositions “Anthony Advers” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood”. In comparison, it was a difficult road for Erich Zeisl. He escaped from Vienna and via Paris he finally reached America. Thanks to the intervention of Hans Eisler and Hans Kafka, he was able to get various jobs as a composer in Hollywood but he was never to be a big success like Korngold.

It is with thanks to Erich Zeisls daughter, Barbara Zeisl-Schoenberg, that documents and dedications from Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Erich Zeisl are available for the first time and will be provided exclusively for the movie and the booklet which accompany the recording.

PARTNER

Norman Shetler has built a distinguished career that is all the more remarkable for its excellence and variety in many facets of the arts. Some of the outstanding names with which he has performed both in concert and on recordings are baritones Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and William Warfield, tenor Peter Schreier, violinist Nathan Milstein, cellist Leonard Rose, Heinrich Schiff and the Juilliard Quartet to name but a few. He has held distinguished professorships both at Salzburg‘s famed Mozarteum and the University of Vienna—and this besides being in constant demand in Europe, the United States, and Asia for master classes and musical workshops.

DESCRIPTION

The "Neue Wiener Concert Schrammeln" have been charging Viennese music with a fresh wind. 
The four musicians succeed impressively in joining elegance and Viennese charm to make the sensitive interpretations of original Schrammel music a real pleasure.  The marked musical understanding and the virtuosity of each musician allows the ensemble to make every facette of concert Schrammel music come alive, which earns it a place within the genre of chamber music.
