The Adventures of Robin Hood made Warner Brothers millions and Errol Flynn the
greatest action hero of his generation. The 1938 film saved Erich Korngold’s life. Literally.
While the Jewish composer was in Hollywood working on the swashbuckler’s score, Hitler invaded his homeland. There was no going back to Austria. And that’s how some of Europe’s Wunderkinder, composers at the height of their creative powers, decided the soundtrack of the fledgling movie industry was as classical as a Strauss tone poem. Korngold scored some of Hollywood’s best flicks: King’s Row (Ronald Reagan’s break-out movie), Anthony Adverse (which won the 1937 Oscar for Best Movie Score) and Sea Hawk (another gripping Errol Flynn adventure). But Hollywood didn’t make Korngold; Korngold made Hollywood, says Philippe Quint, who fell instantly in love with the composer’s violin concerto and received a Grammy nomination in 2009 for his definitive recording of it. John Williams of Star Wars fame is also a self-professed Korngold fan, and we’ll have a little fun pointing it out as we travel to another musical galaxy.
