Berthold Goldschmidt (Composer)
Born: 18th January 1903, Hamburg, Germany
Died: 17th October 1996, London, UK
Berthold Goldschmidt was a German Jewish composer who spent most of his life in England. The suppression of his work by Nazi Germany, as well as the disdain with which many Modernist critics elsewhere dismissed his "anachronistic" lyricism, stranded the composer in the wilderness for many years before he was given a revival in his final decade.
