Viennese composer Ernst Toch (1887-1964) was a concert pianist who found even greater success as an avant-garde composer in a variety of genres. He fled to France, Britain and ultimately the US when the Nazis took power. Toch composed symphonies, choral works and film scores, his best known sound track being the chase scene from Shirley Temple's Heidi (1937). His Third Symphony won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1956. Toch also wrote two music theory tomes. Signature light and in poor contrast (not legible head on). Toned. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
