Biography
Franz Lehár (1870-1948), was a major figure in the revival of Viennese light opera at the beginning of the 20th century. His work, The Merry Widow (1905), popularized operetta in the U.S. and also became Hitler's favorite stage work. As a military bandmaster before and during WWI, he composed several marches. During the 1920s, Lehár incorporated new styles of popular music, including American blues, into his compositions, and began composing film scores. The composer, despite having a Jewish wife, remained in Vienna during World WII, avoiding politics.
