The Lost Chord: May 29 - Much Ado About Korngold

On Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s birthday, enjoy highlights from the world premiere recording of his complete incidental music for the 1920 Max Reinhardt production of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” Formerly one of Vienna’s most astounding prodigies, Korngold went on to achieve international celebrity as a composer for Warner Bros. in the 1930s and ’40s. His introduction to Hollywood was by way of Reinhardt’s 1935 film of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” We’ll cut the cake for Korngold, this Sunday at 10 pm.
