Following the success of the first volume, Schott now presents the second volume of songs by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, published for the first time. They date from the early creative period of the 'child prodigy' and already show the extraordinary talent of the young composer. On the basis of the late Romantic musical language, he developed a totally individual sound world full of melodic breadth, refined harmony and sparkling inventiveness. Many of these marvellous songs were composed for certain events; with the operetta-like Die Gansleber im Hause Duschnitz, Korngold managed to write a real 'Viennese delicacy'.
With the help of these two songbooks, singers, pianists and music lovers can, for the first time, get to know the musical beginnings of the composer who was later to become one of the most successful composers of film music in Hollywood.
