Erich Wolfgang Korngold may deserve to be called the Father of Modern Film Music. Born in Brünn, Austria in 1897, he wrote his first symphony at the age of 11. In 1935, he was asked to adapt Mendelssohn's music for a cinema performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Thus began his Hollywood career, which included four Academy Award nominations. He won twice, in 1936 and 1938. He died in 1957.
