Born Walter Ingolf Marcus to a German-Jewish family in 1912, he eventually emigrated to the US in 1939 during the rise of the Nazi party, and changed his name to Dahl. Once here, he worked extensively in Hollywood during the golden age of film. His story and his music has recently been experiencing a renaissance. This exciting work was commissioned by CBDNA in 1961.
