Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin, United States (1926 – 2011)
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. Like Menotti, his works championed lyricism during a time when such compositions were deemed old fashioned and irrelevant to modern society. His most well known work is his setting of Tennessee Williams's Summer and Smoke which premiered at the St Paul Opera in 1971.
