Magic Fire (Erich Wolfgang Korngold)

  Magic Fire - Richard Wagner / Erich Wolfgang Korngold - soundtrack (CD)
 

Erich Wolfgang Korngold

 
  Varese Sarabande CD Club VCL 1107 1071 | Format CD | Year 1955
 

AKA:
Frauen um Richard Wagner
Fuoco magico (Italy)

Limited edition of 1000 copies.


Music Composed by Richard Wagner
Adapted and Supervised by Erich Wolfgang Korngold

Williams Dieterle's 1955 film biography was the last film to be scored by the great Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Though retired from film scoring since 1947, Dieterle coaxed the master composer into returning in order to adapt and supervise all of the film's music. Korngold would be free to choose repertoire, artists, orchestra, chorus and the recording venue, and Korngold's wishes in musical/dramatic matters were to be adhered to without any interference. So while the music is by Wagner, this is Korngold's baby, through and through. And what a baby it is! Magic Fire is a thrilling tribute from one legendary composer to another. The soundtrack also exhibits Korngold's utter mastery at the piano.

The film starred Alan Badel as Wagner, Carlos Thompson as Franz Liszt and also featured both Yvonne De Carlo and Peter Cushing. Even Korngold himself appeared, playing conductor Hans Richter.

Magic Fire is a priceless historic document and a truly magical musical creation all its own.

The final curtain call of the great Erich Wolfgang Korngold is at last available on CD.

This special commemorative edition remembers both Erich Wolfgang Korngold and his son, the legendary music producer George Korngold. November 2007 marks the 50th anniversary of Erich's death and the 20th anniversary of George's. Neither will ever be forgotten.

The CD features the original extensive liner notes by George Korngold.
