'This is an inspired choice in this still early round of Phaidon's excellent, well-presented and illustrated 20th-Century Composers Series.' (Classical Music)
'Jessica Duchen's admirable biography will do much to advance the cause of Korngold.' (Jewish Chronicle)
'As a series, Phaidon's 20th Century Composers has brought remarkable variety and a welter of information, both necessary and delightfully trivial. Intended both for the general reader and for the more enthusiatically musical...' (The Scotsman)
From the Back Cover
Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957) is an extraordinary figure who bridged the worlds of serious music, operetta and film scores, from Mahler to Errol Flynn. Now, as his concert and stage music is also enjoying a great revival of interest, this study offers a reappraisal of Korngold's life and work, revealing a great sense of personal integrity and conviction for musical ideals which are the hallmarks of a true artist.See all Product Description

A good acid test for any biography of an artist is that it should encourage the reader to further investigate the artist's work further. The author's lack of empathy for the composer's music and the remarkable time through which he lived is such that the book fails to enthuse. A great disapointment.
