The same could be said of Korngold and for almost all the other expatriate composers who migrated to Hollywood from Western Europe. The idea originated with Richard Wagner. Listen to the incidental scoring behind the recitatives in his operas.
If Wagner had lived in this century, he would have been the Number One film composer. How ironic that the very people who were hounded, defiled and persecuted mercilessly by the Nazis would remain steadfastly loyal to Germany's musical traditions! When some of these expatriate composers returned to their native countries after the war, they discovered to their dismay that the shell-shocked survivors were no longer receptive to the romantic vocabulary of the nineteenth century, which they and other Hollywood composers still employed.
Korngold, among many others, felt rejected and ignored by his own countrymen and former colleagues. He arrived in Hollywood inand composed the score for what what would become a cult Cristina - Burning - Noches De Rock & Roll Bride of Frankensteinhis first American film.
This won an Oscar, as did his previous score for the legendary Sunset Boulevard Like other Jewish composers arriving in Hollywood, Waxman had a sublime lyric gift: he was perhaps one of the greatest melodists of them all. He was born to Jewish parents in Budapest, converted to Lutheranism and studied music at Leipzig. But in The Killers - Miklós Rózsa - Immortal Film Music Of Miklos Rozsaas the Nazis' power was increasing, he moved to Paris, and five years later he came to Hollywood with the famous director Alexander Korda, another Hungarian Jew, to work on The Thief of Bagdad.
His score for Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound is a classic--the ever-popular version of it as a Watch Me Fall - Uncle Tupelo - 89/93: An Anthology concerto appears frequently on pops concerts--and so is his music for the biblical epic Ben Hur and the uplifting Christian dramas Quo Vadis and King of Kingswhich are accompanied by appropriately religious music.
His music is different from the German romanticism of Korngold and Steiner, closer to the harmonic world of German Expressionism in film noir, as, for instance, in his influential scores for Double Indemnity, Lost Weekend and The Killerswhose melody was later used as the main theme for the popular TV show Dragnet.
The three of them were among the principal creators of the music for film noir, which remains one of Hollywood's unique achievements. Is there anything more American than the cowboy? And is not the Western the quintessential movie form of the rugged individual that we Americans honor as an idealized role model, and whose music we most associate with such paragons of male Americana as John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster?
But the composer most often credited with having created the musical style for the American western is Dimitri Tiomkin, who was born in the Ukraine to a scholarly The Killers - Miklós Rózsa - Immortal Film Music Of Miklos Rozsa musical Jewish family.
