The Aron Quartet (with guests) applies itself to more chamber works by Korngold, where the composer shows himself free of stylistic or intellectual restraints. Using a wide variety of scorings, the composer seeks to surmount formal barriers and reach the utmost limits of structure and expression. The two works recorded here – the String Sextet in D major op. 10 and the Suite op. 23 – are highly individual examples of Korngold's innovative approach to chamber music. The Sextet is the work of a wondrous youth, already being compared with the young Mozart and Mendelssohn on account of his compositions' artistic maturity. The Suite, on the other hand, directly followed Korngold's most ambitious opera, Das Wunder der Heliane, which he completed in his early thirties.
