From Academic Kids

Erich Wolfgang Korngold (May 29, 1897 - November 29, 1957) was a composer.

Korngold was born in Brno, Austria-Hungary (now Czech Republic), the son of the music critic Julius Korngold, and studied music under Alexander von Zemlinsky and Robert Fuchs. Gustav Mahler, upon meeting the young Erich, called him a "musical genius." He had success in Europe with his opera Die tote Stadt (1920) among other pieces before moving to the United States where he wrote a number of highly regarded film scores. He continued to write concert music in a rich, Romantic style, with a concerto for violin among his notable later works. In 1943, Korngold became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He died in Hollywood, California.
