Erich Wolfgang Korngold Collection
Composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957), a remarkable child prodigy, gained considerable fame at age 13 with the premiere of a ballet-pantomime in 1910. He went on to write chamber music, songs, operas and other dramatic works, and works for orchestra before leaving Europe in the 1930s. He then settled in Hollywood, where he became one of the first renowned composers of concert music to begin writing scores for films. Korngold's music for the movie Anthony Adverse received an Oscar for the best film score in 1936. The collection contains Korngold's music manuscripts, for concert works as well as some film scores. Papers in the collection include correspondence to the composer, as well as some letters to and from his father, music critic Julius Korngold.
