Schubert’s ebullient violin showpiece is framed by up-and-coming American composer Jessie Montgomery’s vivacious opener and Bernard Herrmann’s 1960 Oscar-winning score in concert version. This popular timepiece is answered by a rarely heard, nostalgia-tinged masterpiece by two-time Oscar winner Erich Korngold, a Viennese-American transplant who continued to compose in a “legit” vein long after his commercial success.
