Picture Perfect: Erich Wolfgang Korngold
May 29 marks the anniversary of the birth of Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957). One of music’s great prodigies, Korngold composed operas, orchestral works, and chamber music of astonishing maturity from a very early age. In the 1930s, he arrived in Hollywood, where he set about revolutionizing the art of film scoring. Remember him on his birthday with selections from “The Sea Hawk” (1940), “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1935), “Another Dawn” (1937), and “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938). Lend some swagger to your weekend, this Saturday at 6 pm.
