Karl Goldmark Program Notes and Sheet Music

Karl Goldmark (May 18, 1830 – January 2, 1915) was a Hungarian-born composer who lived in Vienna for most of his life. He was a student of Felix Mendelssohn and Robert Schumann, and his music is often described as a blend of German Romanticism and Hungarian folk music.

Goldmark's most famous works include the opera The Queen of Sheba (1875), the symphonic poem Sakuntala (1884), and the Violin Concerto in A minor (1886). He also wrote a number of chamber music works, choral pieces, and songs.

Goldmark was a popular composer in his own day, and his music was often performed throughout Europe. However, his reputation declined in the 20th century, and he is now considered a minor figure in the history of music.

Goldmark's music is still performed today, but it is not as well-known as the music of his contemporaries, such as Brahms and Wagner. However, he is still considered an important figure in the history of music, and his work is still enjoyed by many people.
