Korngold's Violin Concerto

When you hear dramatic strings in a movie soundtrack, you can thank Erich Korngold. In the 1930s, he helped create the template for the Hollywood movie score. On Friday's Performance Today you may recognize the same epic sound in Korngold's Violin Concerto, which we'll hear from a concert in Los Angeles.
