European Composers of Hollywood's Golden Age

This show is dedicated to the memory of Glen Roven.

York Theatre
619 Lexington Ave
New York, NY

While this performance is free, reservations are required and will be available online at yorktheatre.org.

Many of Hollywood's greatest film songs were written by émigré and exiled composers who fled war-torn Europe and scored the music for Hollywood's Golden Age. Yet no matter how American they tried to sound, classically-trained composers like Kurt Weill, Max Steiner, Erich Korngold, and Dimitri Tiomkin couldn't help but write the music from whence they came and, thereby, created and invented the sound of Hollywood films. American music benefited, as we became heir to their legacy. From dusty westerns and sweeping romances to the thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock, European Composers of Hollywood's Golden Age celebrates our rich musical heritage through the songs they gave us, performed by Soprano Karyn Levitt and Pianist Jed Distler.
