The Broadway Sound: The Autobiography and Selected Essays of Robert Russell Bennett

Przednia okładka
University Rochester Press, 1999 - 356
The remarkable career of composer-orchestrator Robert Russell Bennett (1894-1981) encompassed a wide variety of both "legitimate" and popular music-making on Broadway, in Hollywood, and for television. Bennett is principally responsible for what is known worldwide as the "Broadway sound" and for greatly elevating the status of the theater orchestrator. He worked alongside Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, and Frederick Loewe on much of the Broadway canon. Among the more than 300 musicals on which he worked between 1920 and 1975 are Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, Show Boat, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music. He also arranged and orchestrated all the music in the memorable 26-part NBC television series Victory at Sea.

"The Broadway Sound" is the first publication of Bennett's autobiography, which was written in the late 1970s. It also includes eight of his most important essays on the art of orchestration.
