Erich Korngold has been described by his contemporaries Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss as the most naturally gifted musician since Mozart. By the time he was 12 years old, his works were being performed throughout Europe. After his success in Europe, Korngold moved to Hollywood and became the ultimate musical voice of Golden Era pictures.
His Suite Op. 23 for 2 Violins, Cello and Piano left hand was commissioned by pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right hand in the First World War.
Star violinist Benjamin Schmid performs the Suite together with three extraordinary young musicians: pianist Andrei Gologan, violinist Peixin Jiang and cellist Hyazintha Andrej.
The video was co-produced by the Salzburg-based TV channel FS1.
