Frederick Loewe (1901–1988) was an Austrian-American composer. He collaborated with lyricist Alan Jay Lerner on a series of Broadway musicals, including “My Fair Lady” and “Camelot,” both of which were made into films. After “Camelot” Loewe decided to retire to Palm Springs, California, not writing anything until he was approached by Lerner to augment the “Gigi” film score with additional tunes for a 1973 stage adaptation, which won him his second Tony, this time for Best Original Score. He remained in Palm Springs, California until his death. He was buried in the Desert Memorial Park (31705 Da Vall Dr, Cathedral City, CA 92234).
