On 30 August 2019, John releases a new recording of Korngold’s Symphony in F Sharp on Chandos Records with the Sinfonia of London.

This is the first of many more recordings to come with the Sinfonia of London, an orchestra that was formed originally in 1955 and re-established in 2018 by John.

The recording has already earned a 5-star review from Classical Source:

“However valuable John Wilson’s back catalogue, this ... Chandos issue might just prove to be his most substantial recording achievement to date. It is by my reckoning the tenth commercial release of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s once-neglected Symphony but it is indubitably ahead of the pack, setting new standards in several respects.”

The recording can be purchased, streamed and downloaded here.

John will conduct the Korngold Symphony in Munich when he makes his debut with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra on 12 and 13 December 2019, and in Berlin with the Deutsche Sinfonie Orchester Berlin on 30 April 2020.

John recently appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’ to discuss the genius of Korngold's music alongside musicologist and Korngold biographer Brendan G Carroll: listen here
