  1. Max Steiner - Wikipedia

    Max Steiner was born on May 10, 1888, in Austria-Hungary, as the only child in a wealthy business and theatrical family of Jewish heritage. He was named after his paternal grandfather, Maximilian Steiner (1839–1880), who was credited with first persuading Johann Strauss II to write for the theater, and was the influential manager of Vienna's historic Theater an der Wien.

  2. Max Stirner - Wikipedia

    Stirner was born in Bayreuth, Bavaria.What little is known of his life is mostly due to the Scottish-born German writer John Henry Mackay, who wrote a biography of Stirner (Max Stirner – sein Leben und sein Werk), published in German in 1898 (enlarged 1910, 1914) and translated into English in 2005.

    Steiner was born on May 10, 1888, in Aus­tria-Hun­gary. He was the only child in a wealthy busi­ness and the­atri­cal fam­ily of Jew­ish her­itage. He was named after his pa­ter­nal grand­fa­ther, Max­i­m­il­ian Steiner (1839–1880), who was cred­ited with first per­suad­ing Jo­hann Strauss II to write for the the­ater, and was the in­flu­en­tial man­ager of Vi­enna's his­toric The­ater an der Wien. His fa­ther was the Hun­gar­ian-Jew­ish Gábor Steiner (1858–1944, born in Temesvár, King­dom of Hun­gary, Aus­trian Em­pire), a Vi­en­nese im­pre­sario, car­ni­val ex­po­si­tion man­ager, and in­ven­tor, re­spon­si­ble for build­ing the Wiener Riesen­rad. His fa­ther en­cour­aged Steiner's mu­si­cal tal­ent, and al­lowed him to con­duct an Amer­i­can op­eretta, The Belle of New York which al­lowed Steiner to gain early recog­ni­tion by the op­eretta's au­thor, Gus­tave Kerker. Steiner's mother was a dancer in stage pro­duc­tions put on by his grand­fa­ther when she was young, but later be...

    Be­tween 1907 and 1914, Steiner trav­eled be­tween Britain and Eu­rope to work on the­atri­cal productions.:4 Steiner first en­tered the world of pro­fes­sional music when he was fif­teen. He wrote and con­ducted the op­eretta, The Beau­ti­ful Greek Girl, but his re­fused to stage it say­ing that it wasn't good enough. Steiner took the com­po­si­tion to com­pet­ing im­pre­sario Carl Tuschl who of­fered to pro­duce it. Much to Steiner's plea­sure, it run in the Or­pheum The­atre for a year.:58 This led to op­por­tu­ni­ties to con­duct other shows in var­i­ous cities around the world, in­clud­ing Moscow and Ham­burg. Upon re­turn­ing to Vi­enna, Steiner found his fa­ther in bank­ruptcy. Hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties find­ing work, he moved to Lon­don (in part to fol­low an Eng­lish show­girl hed met in Vienna).:58 In Lon­don, he was in­vited to con­duct Lehar's The Merry Widow. He stayed in Lon­don for eight years con­duct­ing mu­si­cals at Daly's The­atre, the Adel­phi, the Hip­po­drome, t...

    Steiner soon ac­quired em­ploy­ment and worked in New York for fif­teen years as a mu­si­cal di­rec­tor, arranger, or­ches­tra­tor, and con­duc­tor of Broad­way pro­duc­tions. These pro­duc­tions in­clude op­erettas and mu­si­cals writ­ten by Vic­tor Her­bert, Jerome Kern, Vin­cent Youmans, and George Gersh­win, among oth­ers. Steiner's cred­its in­clude: George White's Scan­dals (1922) (di­rec­tor), Peaches (1923) (com­poser), Lady, Be Good(1924) (con­duc­tor and orchestrator). In 1927, Steiner or­ches­trated and con­ducted Harry Tier­ney's Rio Rita. Tier­ney him­self later re­quested that RKO Pic­tures in Hol­ly­wood hire Steiner to work in their music pro­duc­tion de­part­ments. William LeBaron, RKO's head of pro­duc­tion, trav­eled to New York to watch Steiner con­duct and was im­pressed by Steiner and his mu­si­cians, who each played sev­eral in­stru­ments, mak­ing Steiner a Hol­ly­wood asset. His final pro­duc­tion on Broad­way was Sons O' Gunsin 1929.

    RKO hired Max Steiner on as an or­ches­tra­tor and his first film jobs con­sisted of com­pos­ing music for the main and end ti­tles and oc­ca­sional "on screen" music.:112-113 Steiner's first job was for the film Dix­i­ana; how­ever, after awhile RKO de­cided to let him go, feel­ing that they weren't re­ally using him. His agent found him a job as a mu­si­cal di­rec­tor on an op­eretta in At­lantic City. Be­fore he left RKO, they of­fered him a month to month con­tract as the head of the Music De­part­ment with promise more work in the fu­ture and he agreed.:18 In Kurt Lon­don's Film Music, he ex­pressed the opin­ion that Amer­i­can film music was in­fe­rior to Eu­ro­pean film music be­cause it lacked orig­i­nal­ity of com­po­si­tion; he cited the music of Max Steiner as an ex­cep­tion to the rule.Be­cause the few com­posers in Hol­ly­wood were un­avail­able, Steiner com­posed his first film score for Cimar­ron. The score was well re­ceived and was par­tially cred­ited for the suc­c...

    As early as six years old, Steiner was tak­ing three or four piano lessons a week and often be­came bored of the lessons. Be­cause of this, he would prac­tice im­pro­vis­ing on his own and his fa­ther would en­cour­age him to write his music down. Steiner cited that his early im­pro­vi­sa­tion in­flu­enced his taste in music, claim­ing that his back­ground in im­pro­vi­sa­tion in­flu­enced his in­ter­est in the music of Claude De­bussy which was "avant garde" for the time.:2 The music of Ed­mund Eysler was an early in­flu­ence in the pieces of Max Steiner.:2 One of his first in­tro­duc­tions to op­eretta's was by Franz Lehár who worked for a time as a mil­i­tary band­mas­ter for Steiner's fa­ther's theatre.:3 Steiner paid trib­ute to Lehár through an op­eretta mod­eled after Lehár's Die lustige Witwe which Steiner staged in 1907 in Vienna.:3 Eysler was well-known for his op­erettas though as cri­tiqued by Richard Traub­ner, the li­bretti were poor, with a fairly sim­ple style, and t...

    Steiner ex­plains that in the early days of sound, pro­duc­ers avoided un­der­scor­ing music be­hind di­a­logue, feel­ing that the au­di­ence would won­der where the music was com­ing from. As a re­sult, he notes that "they began to add a lit­tle music here and there to sup­port love scenes or silent se­quences." But in scenes where music might be ex­pected, such as a night­club, ball­room or the­ater, the or­ches­tra fit in more nat­u­rally and was used often. In order to jus­tify the ad­di­tion of music in scenes where it wasn't ex­pected, music was in­te­grated into the scene through char­ac­ters or added more con­spic­u­ously. For ex­am­ple, a shep­herd boy might play a flute along with the or­ches­tra heard in the back­ground or a ran­dom, wan­der­ing vi­o­lin­ist might fol­low around a cou­ple dur­ing a love scene.:57 How­ever, be­cause half of the music was recorded on the set, Steiner says it led to a great deal of in­con­ve­nience and cost when scenes were later edited, be­...

James New­ton Howard, who com­posed the score for the 2005 re­make of King Kong, stated that he was in­flu­enced by Max Steiner's score, cit­ing that his de­scend­ing theme when Kong first ap­pears is rem­i­nis­cent of Max Steiner's score.
