Austro-Hungarian composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold was born on this day in 1897.
Remembered as one of the founders of film music, he was awarded the 1938 Academy Award for his score to The Adventures of Robin Hood – widely respected as one of the finest film scores ever written.
Dying in 1957, Korngold's major contributions to the violin repertoire include a sonata and his Violin Concerto in D Major Op. 35.
