Dahl Walter Ingolf Marcus

Ingold Dahl (1912-1970) was a German-born American pianist and composer who is mostly known for his Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Wind Orchestra. After fleeing Nazi occupied Europe (his stepfather was part Jewish), Dahl settled in Los Angeles under his mother's maiden name where he joined group of other expat musicians: Arnold Schoenberg, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud etc. He gained experience and good reputation in the entertainment industry playing various keyboards in the soundtrack orchestras for many films and TV shows (e.g., The Twilight Zone). Gradually he started to compose for various instruments, gaining acknowledgment from his peers (Copland, Poulenc) and critics as well. From 1945 till 1970 he taught at the University of Southern California and his most prominent student was Tilson Thomas.
