The Lost Chord: April 22 - Much Ado About Korngold

much_ado_beatrice_and_benedick.jpg

On the eve of the surmised birthday of William Shakespeare (on April 23, 1564), enjoy highlights from the world premiere recording of the complete incidental music for the 1920 Max Reinhardt production of “Much Ado About Nothing.”  The music is by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, one of Vienna’s most astounding prodigies, who went on to achieve international celebrity as a composer of film scores.  Korngold’s introduction to Hollywood was by way of Reinhardt’s 1935 film version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”  Start counting out candles for the Bard, this Sunday at 10 pm.
