“It has always been my dream to present the two great ‘Golds’, two of my favorite composers together on a CD.
The light, fragrant classic sounds of Vienna from Goldmark, and the refined, ‘Oscar’ winning Hollywood melodies of Korngold have something in common – they unfold together is an almost magical effect. I was fascinated as a child, when I heard the name Carl Goldmark. The hall of the Jewish community in Budapest where I did my first gigs bears his name, the greatest of Hungarian-Jewish romantic Goldmark. I wanted to play his music. During his lifetime, he was highly respected by Johann Strauss, Brahms and Mahler – now today his works are, unfortunately, very rarely played. (Orsolya Korcsolan)
