Korngold. His life and Legacy
Experience the music of a Viennese “wunderkind” who dazzled classical music circles before re-inventing the Hollywood soundtrack.
Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s life, music, and legacy inspire this Sunday afternoon celebration at Temple Emanu-El in the beautiful Stern Chapel.
Join Dallas Opera Concertmaster Ellen de Pasquale and Mitch Maxwell, the Catherine Brackbill Principal Cello Chair, in a live performance of Korngold’s Piano Trio, Op. 1, followed by a thought-provoking panel discussion.
Together, we will trace the composer’s fascinating journey from child prodigy to Hollywood has-been; a journey that will take us from Mahler’s Vienna at the end of the Hapsburg Empire, through the dark days of the Anschluss and Nazi occupation, to a “dream factory” located halfway around the world in sunny California—and the composer’s final years in the concert hall.
The panel, moderated by Temple Emanu-El Cantor Vicki Glikin, with special guest Mary Pat Higgins, President and CEO of Dallas Holocaust Museum, will also explore the reasons the music of Erich Wolfgang Korngold is now being eagerly embraced by 21st century critics and audiences.
