Talk:Frederick Loewe

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Many sources cite 1904 as his birth year, among them 1904 (Frederick Loewe)! I don't know which is right. Andres 06:55, 19 Jun 2004 (UTC)

The Music Library at my college (Bowdoin) has him listed under 1901. I'm not really disputing - just mentioning. Someone should research this because I can't do it right now.

Frederic or Frederick? Google shows TONS more with a "k". Should this be moved? -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 23:27, 18 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is "Frederick" (as indeed this article spelt it, despite the title being "Frederic"). I hope everyone is happy with the name change? Ondewelle (talk) 23:05, 6 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Berlin Symphony?[edit]

"At 13, he was the youngest piano soloist ever to appear with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra." - Can't be. He was age 13 in 1914. There are two orchestras named Berlin Symphony Orchestra, one founded in 1949, the other in 1952. Was it actually the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra? --FordPrefect42 (talk) 11:52, 29 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Prussian Cadet School[edit]

The article says he "attended a Prussian cadet school from the age of five until he was thirteen." Two questions: 1) what's the name of the cadet school (online sources indicate that it was in Berlin), and 2) what sort of cadet school was it? The German Wikipedia has some information about Prussian cadet schools [1] but suggests that these are for older students (high school age). Zyxwv99 (talk) 17:54, 25 March 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Major revert[edit]

I just reverted a long series of unreferenced edits by User:Labrynthia9856. The edits looked seriously fishy, the whole thing was completely unreferenced, and a little fact-checking indicated that major errors were being introduced. When I saw the user's talk page (see User_talk:Labrynthia9856#Vandalism) it became obvious that we have a problem. Zyxwv99 (talk) 02:56, 8 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Incidentally, Frederick Loewe was Austrian-American. Germany is one of several countries which does not automatically grant citizenship to individuals merely by virtue of having been born there. This has been true since the German nation-state was established in 1871. Zyxwv99 (talk) 19:26, 9 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Personal life?[edit]

No mention of marriages or relationships. Valetude (talk) 21:47, 24 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For some reason, even his "official" sites doen't mention his spouse.[2][3] However I found an obit that gives his marital info. That AP article spells her name "Ernestine Zerline",[4] while some other sources spell it "Zwerline".[5] Mobi Ditch (talk) 21:12, 2 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lerner and Loewe[edit]

The partnership Lerner and Loewe is mentioned in the very first paragraph of this article, and rightly so IMO, and this article links to that one but possibly only in the Lerner and Loewe and My Fair Lady templates at the foot. There should be a prominent link in the introduction IMO but I'm not quite sure how to provide it. Andrewa (talk) 17:05, 1 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
