Autograph musical quotation signed in full from his Piano Trio, Op. 1
by KORNGOLD, Erich Wolfgang 1897-1957
Austrian composer Erich Korngold was recognized as a child prodigy by the most important composers and musicians in Europe, achieving wide recognition after the premiere of his ballet Der Schneemann in Vienna in 1910. His piano sonatas were performed by renowned pianist Arthur Schnabel, and the Piano Trio in D Major was published as his Opus 1 by Universal Edition. Richard Strauss remarked: "One's first reaction that these compositions are by a child are those of awe and concern that so precocious a genius should follow its normal development .... This assurance of style, this mastery of form, this characteristic expressiveness, this bold harmony, are truly astonishing!" Brendan G. Carroll in Grove Music Online. Korngold left for the United States in 1934, and ended up settling there permanently. In Hollywood, he became on the first leading film composers, writing symphonic scores for early cinema classics such as Captain Blood (1935), Anthony Adverse (1936), and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).. 1 page of a bifolium (111 x 174 mm).
