THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD
Robin Hood and his Merry Men
The Fight Victory and Epilogue
"The Sea Wolf" by Jack London is one of the most filmed stories in movie
history. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's score for the 1941 version -stark and
brutally dissonant -shows him at his most dramatic.
His most famous film score was for the 1938 Technicolor classic "The
Adventures" of Robin Hood starring
Errol Flynn. It won Korngold his second Oscar for Best Score, and soon after
its release he assembled a
short concert suite in four movements, one of the first pieces of film music
to be played in concert.
Korngold's method in composing for film was unique. Once filming was
complete he would improvise at
the piano while simultaneously watching the running film, until his music
fitted the action like a hand in
a glove. Later he would write out these sequences from memory, and, to the
amazement of his colleagues, his innate sense of timing made him correct to
the last fraction of a second.
Korngold made the move from classical composer to Hollywood with major
success. His wonderful
command of the orchestra and sweeping romantic sounds has influenced many
This is the premiere recording of the complete score of Korngold's "The Sea
"Robin Hood" is regarded as one of the most influential scores ever written for the cinema, and shows
Korngold at his swashbuckling best!
