Loewe, Frederick (Fritz)

(Born; Berlin, 10 June 1901; Died; Palm Springs, 14 Feb 1988). American composer. He studied with Busoni, d'Albert and Reznicek, then went to the USA in 1924 and from the 1930s worked on Broadway (from Life of the Party, 1942, with Alan Jay Lerner). Their particular successes include Brigadoon (1947), which retains aspects of European operetta style, and My Fair Lady (1956), where the music is sensitively accommodated to character. He also wrote music for the film Gigi (1958). His last stage work, also with Lemer, was Camelot (1960).
