Composed by: Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Franz Waxman, John Williams

Alexander Gilman, Violin
The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra
Perry So, Dirigent

On his new CD issued by Oehms Classics, Alexander Gilman dedicates himself to two grandiose violin concertos composed within six years of each other: Barber’s Concerto, Op. 14 (1939) and Korngold’s Concerto, Op. 35 (1945).

Korngold processed themes for his film music from the his Concerto written in Europe before arriving in Hollywood , Barber set the yardstick especially high for the soloist in the third movement of his Concerto. Alexander Gilman and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, however, do not seem to have any difficulties with it.

The CD programme is completed by the Carmen Fantasie by Franz Waxman (originally from the film Humoresque) and the famous main theme from the film Schindler’s List by John Williams.
