The World's Greatest Music
Katherine Jenkins explores the magical world of movie music.
The Austrian Max Steiner was a child prodigy who studied under Brahms and Mahler no less, and was the godson of Richard Strauss. Steiner moved to Hollywood in 1929 where he became known as the Father of Film Music. ‘He was Oscar-nominated a mere 24 times but who’s counting?’ says Katherine. ‘And the film score for which he is best known is this one.’ In addition to writing Gone with the Wind, Steiner composed 11 other movie scores in 1939 alone, but unfortunately for him, the Oscar that year went to another film altogether – The Wizard of Oz.
