For the first half of the 20th century, the popular music of America was created largely by Jewish composers (melody) and lyricists (words). Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, the film industry and the media were the motivators and customers of this artful "product." Most prominent among the music creators were such Jews as Berlin, Rodgers, Hammerstein, the Gershwins and many, many more.
Within this context, this course will present and analyze the works of major Jewish lyricists such as Irving Berlin, Larry Hart, Ira Gershwin, E.Y. Harburg, Leo Robin, Jay Livingston and others
