Biography

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 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 Herrmann, Hugo Friedhofer, Alfred Newman and others, available on the Marco Polo label. The success of these film recordings led him to the opportunity of conducting and preserving this new series of seldom heard American classics. Today, 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. He aspires to form a new orchestra devoted to the live performance of classic and contemporary film music.

    I so agree. The score for Trinity and Beyond was just phenomenal. Chilling and so fitting for the subject matter. I haven't seen documentaries having such an amazing score.

    His Trinity and Beyond soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks I know. Suited perfectly to the movie.
