Die sumptuous music, which is anchored in the later Romantic, but clearly reveals Korngold's own style and reminds of his career as a flim composer in occasional elements, blooms passionately under Patrik Ringborg's baton in many colours. It revels and rages, it seethes and shines and draws you into a spell that you can not escape (and don't want to). Unusually, but convincingly, the first act seamlessly merges into the second, which only adds to the power of the music. The orchestra follows its music director willingly and committedly, almost flawless, except for the tattered final tone, which brought the listener back into the reality of life with its weaknesses in addition to the beautiful. ... Conductor and orchestra are really enthralling.
