Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Mario

   American composer of Italian origin. He was a member of an old Florentine family. He settled in Hollywood, where he wrote film music. In 1925 he found a notebook of Jewish melodies in his grandfather's house, which encouraged him to write Jewish compositions; his works on Jewish subjects include La danza del Re David, Tre corali su melodie ebraiche, The Prophets, Sacred Service, Ruth, Jonah, Naomi and Ruth and Saul.
