Korngold + Rozsa on BBC Radio 3

Postby tjguitar » Wed Nov 14, 2007 8:04 pm

Saw this posted at the Rozsa forums:


Recently read the confirmation that Rozsa - along with Korngold - will be the featured Composers of the Week, in a series of five programmes from Monday 26th Nov-Friday 30th Nov. Each is at 12 noon (UK time) and repeated at 8.45 pm the same day, on BBC Radio 3. No news of content so far, but they will likely consist of a mix of both film and concert works by the two composers.

Glad this has materialised and I'm grateful to the producer(s) for responding, and realising the importance of radio exposure on a major network for such important anniversaries as Rozsa's Centenary - as well as EWK's 50 years since his death.

Programmes can be heard online on the usual BBC Radio 3 site, live and again up to seven days later. Bound to be well worth a listen.

Miklos Rozsa (1907-1995) and Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957)

'Films are fantasy', said Hollywood mogul Jack Warner, 'and fantasy needs music'. We follow two European emigres, born 10 years and 200 miles apart, on the epic journey to provide the soundtrack to Hollywood's Golden Age.

Donald Macleod hears from Hollywood film music historian Jon Burlingame and conductor John Mauceri, who share some first hand reminiscences of both composers.

1/5. The Talent

Both young composers enjoyed considerable acclaim in their own countries and across Europe. Korngold was a respected opera composer, while Rozsa was championed by conductors Karl Bohm and Charles Munch. However, between Schoenberg and Stravinsky, there wasn't much call (and certainly no money) for the lush scores of late Romanticism.
