Required coursework

An informal interview with Tamara Hovey Gold, sister of composer/musicologist Serge Hovey, and, like her brother, a one-time student of Arnold Schoenberg. I love the fact that one of the mandatory classes for UCLA music education majors was a composition class with the founder of the Second Viennese School.

Following in her her mother’s footsteps, Tamara Hovey had a few credits as a screenwriter—most notably the Mario Lanza truck-driver-becomes-a-star classic That Midnight Kiss and the Dorothy Dandridge vehicle Tamango—before turning her hand to biography, penning lives of George Sand and John Reed.
