Biography

Lee Henry Hoiby (February 17, 1926 – March 28, 2011) was an American composer and classical pianist. Best known as a composer of operas and songs, he was a disciple of composer Gian Carlo Menotti.[1] Like Menotti, his works championed lyricism during a time when such compositions were deemed old fashioned and irrelevant to modern society.[2] His most well known work is his setting of Tennessee Williams’s Summer and Smoke which premiered at the St Paul Opera in 1971.
