Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Paperback Book

Erich Wolfgang Korngold Paperback

Part of the 20th-Century Composers series


This colourful biography explores the life and music of Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957), whose varied compositions ranged from operas (written at a very young age) and orchestral music to lighter works such as operettas and Hollywood film scores.

Korngold's lush, romantic scores have influenced many other film composers, while a recent resurgence of interest in his work has lent greater credibility to his more serious classical compositions.
