Recent concert review of the Korngold Sextet by Christine Colbourne

As part of the celebrations for the 75th anniversary of its formation, Haywards Heath Music Society was delighted to welcome a return visit from Ensemble Reza. This group of local virtuoso string players goes from strength to strength. 
Perhaps best known for his many film scores, this highly individual work was a revelation. Each movement had its distinctive characteristics, in fact we could almost have been listening to four separate film scores. The opening introduced the most glorious song like melodies reminiscent of the Romantic era. In complete contrast the ultra calm second movement where time seemed to stand still brought to mind the slow movement of Schubert's C Major Quintet. An Intermezzo with a Viennese flavour led to the final movement, a Presto which would have served well as music for an action film.
