About Dr. Julius Leopold Korngold

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_Korngold

Julius Korngold (December 24, 1860 – September 25, 1945) was a noted music critic. He was regarded as the top critic in Vienna in the early twentieth century, when that city was viewed as the centre of classical music. He was Hanslick's successor on Vienna's Neue Freie Presse and is most notable for championing the works of Gustav Mahler at a time when many did not think much of him and being an implacable adversary of the New Viennese School. He was the father of composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, for whom he co-wrote (with his son) the libretto of Korngold's opera Die tote Stadt (under the pseudonym Paul Schott).
