Erich Wolfgang Korngold was born in Brünn, Moravia, Austria. He was an Austrian-American composer. Along with Max Steiner and Alfred Newman, he is considered one of the founders of film music. His 1938 Academy Award for his score to The Adventures of Robin Hood marked the first time an Oscar was awarded to the composer rather than the head of the studio music department. He wrote his first orchestral score, the Schauspiel Ouverture when he was 14. His Sinfonietta appeared the following year, and his first two operas, Der Ring des Polykrates and Violanta, in 1914. He completed his opera Die tote Stadt, which became an international success, in 1920 at the age of 23.
