  • Description

    The teenage Korngold possessed a compositional fluency and maturity which belied his youth; in contrast, Tchaikovsky feared—wholly unjustifiably—his own creative powers to be on the wane when writing 'Souvenir de Florence'. The Nash Ensemble brings passion and conviction to both.
