Richard Rodgers
(1902-1979)
  • Biography
  • Artwork
Richard Charles Rodgers (June 28, 1902 – December 30, 1979) was an American composer who worked primarily in musical theater. With 43 Broadway musicals and over 900 songs to his credit, Rodgers was one of the most well-known American composers of the 20th century, and his compositions had a significant influence on popular music.
Rodgers worked almost exclusively with two lyricists. With Lorenz Hart (1895-1943) he wrote 30 stage and film musicals between 1917 and 1943, including A Connecticut Yankee, On Your Toes, Babes in Arms, The Boys From Syracuse, Love Me Tonight and Pal Joey. Between 1943 and '59 he scored 9 musicals and 2 films with Oscar Hammerstein II, including Oklahoma!, Flower Drum Song, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. His collaborations with Hammerstein in particular are celebrated for bringing the Broadway musical to a new maturity by telling stories that were focused on characters and drama rather than the earlier light-hearted entertainment of the genre.
