Richard Rodgers  (1902-1979)
Last updated: 11.10.21
According to the Internet source given below, Richard Charles Rodgers was an American composer, known largely for his work in musical theater. With 43 Broadway musicals and over 900 songs to his credit, Rodgers was one of the most significant American composers of the 20th century, and his compositions had a significant impact on popular music.
He is best known for his song writing partnerships with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II, His collaborations with Hammerstein, in particular, are celebrated for bringing the Broadway musical to a new maturity by telling stories that were focused around characters and drama rather than the light-hearted entertainment that the genre was known for beforehand.
Rodgers was the first person to win what are considered the top American entertainment awards in television, recording, movies and Broadway, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award, now known collectively as an EGOT. In addition, he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize, making him one of only two people to receive all five awards (Marvin Hamlisch is the other).
