It was through Max Reinhardt that Korngold first started writing for Hollywood, where he and his family joined the growing exodus of émigrés from Europe. Korngold believed that “music is music, whether it is for the stage, rostrum, or cinema,” and his background in concert music, opera, operetta, and musical comedy proved invaluable in writing for film. His Academy Award-winning score for The Adventures of Robin Hood – an epic Technicolor swashbuckler starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland – integrated music from both his Sursum Corda and his original material for Rosen aus Florida into a taut, genre-defining masterpiece.
