(b 1964 )

Born in 1964, William Stromberg was introduced to the world of classical music at a very early age. His filmmaker father filled the house with the sounds of classic film scores by such great composers as Erich Korngold, Bernard Herrmann, and Max Steiner. Through the constant study of the classical scores that inspired these film composers, he developed a passion for music that laid the foundation for his career. A native Californian, Stromberg moved to Hollywood when he was eighteen to study privately under the tutelage of film-composer John Morgan. He soon began conducting his own film scores and garnered a well-respected reputation as a gifted composer and conductor. He has scored more than a dozen feature films including the thriller Other Voices, the documentary Trinity and Beyond, Killing Streets and Edge of Honor.

His devotion to classic film scores cultivated several joint ventures with John Morgan in reconstructing and recording the works of such composers as Max Steiner, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Alfred Newman, Philip Sainton, Adolph Deutsch, Hans J. Salter, Victor Young and Sir Malcolm Arnold, available on the Marco Polo and Naxos labels. The success of these film recordings led him to the opportunity of conducting and preserving this new series of seldom heard American classics. He has also conducted several much-praised Naxos albums devoted to concert works by American composers, including two albums of music by Ferde Grofé.

Most recently (2008), he led the Moscow Symphony Orchestra in a massive rerecording of Bernard Herrmann’s Mysterious Island for his and John Morgan’s own label Tribute Film Classics. He is currently preparing a new re-recording of Herrmann’s The Kentuckian, also for Tribute Film Classics. Stromberg is much in demand among Hollywood composers as a conductor of film music and sound-track recordings, as well as undertaking engagements to conduct renowned European orchestras.
