Description: A 79-minute selection of songs composed during Korngold's twelve years in Hollywood with lieder-quality settings of Shakespeare surrounded by songs from films and by selections from a 1946 farrago of operetta, musical comedy and opera which was a failure when finally mounted in 1954 but whose music is an enjoyable addition to the Korngold discography. Texts included. Steven Kimbrough (baritone), Courtenay Budd (soprano), Dalton Baldwin (piano).
