Product description

Review

Nothing less than a revelation, this book will be a must for soundtrack buffs. 4 Stars--Film Review

...long overdue....quite admirable...this book provides a thorough analysis of this important score and is to be welcomed for it...--Film Score Monthly, Vol. 12, No. 7 (July 2007)

Winters (musicology, City U., London) examines Erich Wolfgang Korngold's score for the 1938 film The Adventures of Robin Hood . He considers Korngold's career in composing concert music, opera, and film scores, his techniques, his involvement in the studio system, and the film's critical and historical contexts. He also addresses the concept of authorship, viewing the Romantic idea of single authorship as inaccurate, instead acknowledging the role of the listener in creating a work's meaning.--Reference and Research Book News, May 2007

Winters's book is certainly authorative, and it is a real treat to use as a guide through a heavily scored film. There is a great deal of enjoyment to be had sitting down with this book as a companion to the DVD.....--Film International
