The Ballad of John Latouche

Howard Pollack

Oxford University Press

As the war came to an end, Latouche patronized the work of John Cage, wrote songs with David Broekman, and became friendly with composer-critic Donald Fuller. He also wrote the lyrics to another operetta, Polonaise, with music by Chopin arranged by Bronislaw Kaper, and starring the married couple Jan Kiepura and Marta Eggerth. It was only somewhat more successful than Rhapsody.

Keywords:   John Cage, David Broekman, Donald Fuller, Bronislaw Kaper, Jan Kiepura, Marta Eggerth, Broadway operetta, Chopin in 1940s
