A Korngold Euro Classic

Posted at 2:40 PM on September 14, 2010 by Ward Jacobson

Erich Korngold hit it big in this country as one of the pioneers of film music composition, winning two Academy Awards along the way.

Korngold was never too comfortable with all that Hollywood success though, fearing his more serious music would be brushed aside.

Classical MPR's exclusive Euro Classic (12:05am, Thursday) offers up something from Korngold that was never in a film - a Piano Trio he composed 100 years ago, at age 13. You'll hear a concert recorded live in 2009 at the Parish Church of Santa Maria, Vilabertran, with Trio Parnassus.

Hope you can stay up a little later Wednesay night!
