These look like quotations from his operas. The first says "Ring des Polykrates" to the right, the second is the Violanta chord from "Violanta".

The third I recognize outright from DIE TOTE STADT (Gluck, was mir verblieb), and the fourth says "Heliane" to the right of it.

Bobby Mauch (PRINCE AND THE PAUPER) dies at 86

I noticed that Bobby Mauch, who played the prince in the Korngold-scored film PRINCE AND THE PAUPER, has died at 86. His brother Billy, who played the pauper, died last year on Sept 29.

I've always enjoyed PRINCE AND THE PAUPER and enjoyed the performance of the twins in the movie.

I was surprised, just within the first chapter or so, at an implied case of co-authorship of the score attributed to the orchestrators. Having studied Korngold sketches, and knowing he altered the full scores, makes this a surprising claim. I did read your review Brendan - just a few minutes ago. I ...

This is a quite lengthy analysis on the Robin Hood score. Received my copy today - quite a bit of detail I've not come across before.

Wow, what an amazing disc. I am from the USA and ordered my copy from amazon.de...good thing I know a little German. I've never heard P&P sound this good. I've received, over the years, some different tapes of P&P but they always omitted the end titles as well as the Viennese piece when Flynn flirts...

ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD on HD-DVD

If anyone has a high definition TV and an HD-DVD-player, this disc is quite a revelation. The movie looks so good as to defy description. The audio seems pretty similar to the previous DVD release, but this HD-DVD is a true must have. I've been able to enjoy many details in the costumes and sets tha...
