American Songbook Series – Alan Jay Lerner

Alan Jay Lerner was most famous as the lyric-writing half of Lerner & Loewe.  However, this Choate/Harvard educated sophisticate was also a distinguished librettist and screenwriter.

He hit his stride with Frederick Loewe in the mid 1940’s:

  •             Brigadoon
  •             Paint Your Wagon
  •             My Fair Lady
  •             Gigi (film)
  •             Camelot

And with Burton Lane 1950, 60, 70’s

  •             Royal Wedding
  •             On A Clear Day You Can See Forever
  •             Carmelina

Lerner’s uncommon finesse and wit place him easily alongside any great American craftsman of words or music.  As Clive Barnes wrote at the time of Lerner’s death, the world had grown “accustomed to his grace”.
