Three Pieces Op. 11 from Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' by : Erich Wolfgang Korngold
New incidental music was required for a performance of William Shakespeare's comedy Much Ado about Nothing in the Schönbrunn Schlosstheater in Vienna in 1920. Erich Wolfgang Korngold had already composed this music two years previously; he also conducted the première in May 1920. In January of the same year however; Korngold's entertaining suite also received its first performance and its catchy melodies have guaranteed its popularity up to the present day.
A third version arranged by the composer for string quartet surfaced at an auction in 1984 : this version of the work had however never been performed. The Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde [Society of Music Lovers] in Vienna succeeded in purchasing this three-movement version which will receive its much belated performance almost a century after its creation.
