Korngold, Erich

Erich Korngold, one of America’s greatest Hollywood film composers, and forerunner of people such as John Williams, died in 1957, but is finally gaining more of his well deserved recognition. A website devoted to Korngold and his music has been produced by an ardent fan group. It includes biographical information, a listing of his general musical works, film scores, discography, major books about the composer, archival photos of the composer, and a link to an online webcast of “die tote stadt” (which requires a subscription). There are also analyses of film scores, such as Sea Hawk andSea Wolf.
