Frederick Loewe
Birth: Jun. 10, 1904
Death: Feb. 14, 1988

Composer. Born in Vienna, Austria, by age 15, he had composed a hit popular song, "Katrina" and was getting attention as a promising piano virtuoso. In 1937, his first American Musical Production opened in St. Louis called "Salute to Spring". During the 1940s, he became a master of the American style in popular music with his first Broadway Production called "Great Lady". In collaboration with Alan Jay Lerner, he scored the revolutionary Broadway Production of "My Fair Lady" in 1956, which ran for 2,717 performances. The musical became the feature film which included the classic standards "Why Can't The English?", "Wouldn't It Be Loverly", "With a Little Bit Of Luck", "I'm an Ordinary Man", "Just You Wait" and "The Rain in Spain". In 1958, he scored the classic film musical "Gigi", which had songs to include "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" and "I Remember it Well". Before he withdrew from composing, his last score was for "Camelot" (1960), which included songs "I Wonder What the King is Doing Tonight", "Camelot", "The Simple Joys Of Maidenhood", "How to Handle a Woman", and "If Ever I Should Leave You". He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
