Paul Sommerfeld, Music Division

Considered one of the most influential film composers for early Hollywood sound-film, Erich Korngold is arguably most remembered for his swashbuckling scores for The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) and The Sea Hawk (1940). Yet his lyrical melodies, rich textures, virtuosic orchestration, and pronounced theatricality remain constant threads in all of his film scores—threads that continue to inspire composers in the present era, from John Williams to the late James Horner.
