Alan Jay Lerner (1918-1986) and Frederick Loewe (1901-1988) wrote a few of the most stylish, sophisticated theater music from the 20th hundred years. The cooperation didn’t arrive until relatively past due in the profession of every. New York-born, Harvard-educated Lerner composed materials for radio as well as for specific performers in the ’30s. Loewe, blessed in Berlin, found the U.S. in 1924 and steadily worked his method into movie theater music. Both were presented in 1942. They have scored their first strike, the illusion Brigadoon, in 1947. The Lerner-Loewe formulation was to mix Loewe’s lush, melodic music, redolent of Viennese waltz, with Lerner’s witty, literate lyrics. This they do in some of the very most well-known and best-remembered musicals from the ’40s,’50s, and ’60s, notably Color Your Wagon, My Good Female, and Camelot (in addition to the musical film Gigi). After Loewe’s pension, Lerner composed with various other composers, most effectively with Burton Street (On the Clear Day YOU CAN VIEW Forever).
