A composer of 13 musicals, two film scores, a song cycle,
and a Requiem Mass, Andrew Lloyd Webber, born March 28, 1948, has been referred
to as “the most commercially successful composer in history”. As a child of 9, he already had composed a
suite of six pieces, and completed his first little-known musical, The Likes of Us, with lyricist Tim Rice,
at the age of 13. His library,
consisting of such hits as Jesus Christ
Superstar, Cats, Evita, The Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard, and
many others, have garnered him seven Tonys, three Grammys, an Academy Award,
seven Olivier Awards, a Golden Globe, and many others.
Though having some compositions to his name (one of which –
Saturday Night - was not produced until 45 years after it was completed), Stephen
Sondheim, born March 22, 1930, burst onto the Broadway scene as the lyricist to
the Tony-award winning shows, West Side Story, and then Gypsy. Not long after, he wrote both the music and
lyrics for A Funny Thing Happened on the
Way to the Forum. While his work has
not always been favored by critics, Frank Rich of The New York Times recently wrote that Stephen Sondheim is
"now the greatest and perhaps best-known
artist in the American musical theater.”
His contributions over more than a half-century have earned him an
Academy Award, eight Grammy Awards, eight Tony Awards (more than any other
composer) a Pulitzer Prize, the Laurence Olivier Award and the 2015
Presidential Medal of Freedom.
