5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb And THE Reference Recording For BTW! Jan. 27 2002
By William F. Flanigan Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD contains about 30 minutes of cues from Erich Wolfgang
Korngold's BETWEEN TWO WORLDS film symphony, and is the primary
focus of this review. I know of no other modern recording that
can compare with the selections presented here. And there may be
more cues yet to be released, since the CD booklet notes that the
"(s)oundtrack (was) edited by John Mauceri" who is, of course,
the conductor of this brilliant recording. The CD also contains
two of Korngold's classical compositions which are excellent,
and, for Korngold film-music fans, definitely a major "bonus."
Don't hesitate with this one; add it to your collection

3.0 out of 5 stars Generally good, but recommended with reservations June 7 2006
By D. B. Rathbun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Korngold's music is spectacular, and I would recommend it do anyone. I also agree with other reviews I have read for this disc that the music for Between Two Worlds is generally well performed. The DSO-Berlin (former RIAS Orchestra) is a top-notch orchestra, but the second movement of the Symphonic Serenade is utterly amateurish. I kid you not, it sounds at times like a student orchestra. The third and fourth movements are generally solid, but overall there are many patchy parts in the playing--weak coordination, intonation problems, and so forth. But given the paucity of quality recordings of these pieces, this disc is still well worth getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave aside musical conventionalisms and go for this one! Oct. 15 2007
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's time to draw, the unsaid prejudices about the merits and superb talent of Korngold as composer, and stop to overlook him due he made scores for films.

Seventy years have elapsed and it's time to acknowledge and regard him as one of the most egregious and imaginative composers of his generation.

Between two worlds is in this sense an admirable evidence about his powers as astonishing musician. Moreover, if you listen carefully the score, you will be able to find out traces that leads us to a celebrated composer who contrarily received warmth praises around the world: Bernard Hermann, Dimirti Tiomkin and Elmer Bernstein. But of you follow your intuition, you will find the key for emblematic musical curtains (Twilight zone, for instance) and too many variations around those fourteen episodes in different movies. But as you know, "It's easier to break an atom rather than a prejudice" according Albert Einstein.

The Symphonic Serenade is one o his most pyramidal landmarks, the fertile inspiration and the way he gets to create an engaging atmosphere.

The talented conductor John Maurcier makes a refined and sheer performance about all these works that certainly make a winning album, measure by measure.

So, let yourself an artistic license and enjoy the talent and musicality of one of the biggest and overlooked composers of the last Century, whose only sin was to have escaped from Europe in 1934 and choose North America as his home as so many others did it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Korngold - GOLDen indeed 'Between Two Worlds'! March 18 2008
By Platinum Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was labelled 'Entartete Musik' by the Nazis; thankfully, that time of musical suppression is long past and these masterpieces can now be enjoyed the way they were meant to be! Mauceri and his forces capture the nuances of this typically wonderful Korngold score (the VERY best thing about the movie!) and give insightful readings of the remainig works. All in all, a highly entertaining issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars a curious, sometimes frustrating mix Dec 14 2008
By RALPH P. GRAY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What my title means id that some pieces, or parts of some pieces, sound to me like Korngold at his inventive and lyrical best, while others sound trite or like 2nd rate movie music.

K. is, as we know, an expert orchestrator & these pieces show that,which makes the shortcomings more frustrating. Do I consider the disc worth buying?
If you are a K. fan, yes. If you are not familiar with his music, try something like his opera DIE TOTE STADT. ANd go to the library and check out some other titles. You may find things that appeal enough to warrant buying them.
