Adolf Tandler

Adolf Tandler, also Adolph, (born November 2, 1875 in Vienna) was a conductor of the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra, which predated the Los Angeles Philharmonic.[1] He moved to Los Angeles in 1908, and from November 1913 to 1920 led the symphony orchestra, after which it dissolved.[2] He then transitioned to composing film scores, with credits for Scarface (1932 film) and Queen Kelly.[3] He died (suicide by vehicle exhaust) with his daughter, crippled with arthritis since she was 14 years old, on September 30, 1953, in the Eagle Rock, Los Angeles area.[4][5]
