As Time Goes By: Revisiting Casablanca — The Shedd

////

Warner Brothers 1942 war film “Casablanca” is a classic for many reasons, not the least of which is Max Steiner’s brilliant score. Often referred to as “the father of film music”, Steiner, who scored over 300 films for RKO Radio Pictures and Warner during his 30 year Hollywood career and garnered 24 Academy Awards, brought his skill to bear on this straightforward WWII romance masterfully and unforgettably. Jesse Cloninger and company revisit this rich score, it’s fabulous source music, and its creator’s exceptional craftsmanship.
