520    Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897 -- 1957) is an extraordinary
       figure who bridged the worlds of serious music, operetta 
       and film music. Thus he worked with both Mahler and Errol 
       Flynn. As a child prodigy composer in Vienna he achieved 
       legendary status, but personal pressure later drew him 
       into operetta arrangement and thence to Hollywood where he
       spent the war years becoming a highly influential composer
       of film music. Ignoring the changing tides of musical 
       fashion, korngold continued to write in his own lush, 
       romantic idiom. Now, as his music is currently enjoying a 
       great revival of interest, this study offers a reappraisal
       of his life and work.
