Richard Strauss Biography
in full Richard Georg Strauss
( 1864 – 1949 )

(born June 11, 1864, Munich, Germany—died Sept. 8, 1949, Garmisch-Partenkirchen) an outstanding German Romantic composer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His symphonic poems of the 1890s and his operas of the following decade have remained an indispensable feature of the standard repertoire throughout the 20th century.
Strauss's father, Franz, was the principal French-horn player of the Munich Court Orchestra and was recognized as Germany's leading virtuoso of the instrument. His mother came from the prominent brewing family of Pschorr. During a conventional education, Strauss still devoted most of his time and energy to music. When he left school in 1882, he had already composed more than 140 works, including 59 lieder (art songs) and various chamber and orchestral works. These juvenilia reflect Strauss's musical upbringing by his father, who revered the classics and detested Richard Wagner both as a man and as a composer, even though he was a notable performer of the horn passages in performances of Wagner's operas.
Through his father's connections, Strauss on leaving school met the leading musicians of the day, including the conductor Hans von Bulow, who commissioned Strauss's Suite for 13 Winds for the Meiningen Orchestra and invited Strauss to conduct that work's first performance in Munich in November 1884. Following this successful conducting debut, Bulow offered Strauss the post of assistant conductor at Meiningen. Thenceforward Strauss's eminence as a conductor paralleled his rise as a composer. Among the conducting posts he went on to hold were those of third conductor of the Munich Opera (1886–89), director of the Weimar Court Orchestra (1889–94), second and then chief conductor at Munich (1894–98), conductor (and later director) of the Royal Court Opera in Berlin (1898–1919), and musical codirector of the Vienna State Opera (1919–24).
At Meiningen Strauss met the composer Alexander Ritter, who reinforced that admiration for Wagner's music which Strauss had previously nurtured in secret so as not to upset his father. Ritter urged Strauss to abandon classical forms and to express his musical ideas in the medium of the symphonic, or tone, poem, as Franz Liszt had done. Strauss had to work his way to mastery of this form, a half-way stage being his Aus Italien (1886; From Italy), a “symphonic fantasy” based on his impressions during his first visit to Italy. In Weimar in November 1889, he conducted the first performance of his symphonic poem Don Juan. The triumphant reception of this piece led to Strauss's acclamation as Wagner's heir and marked the start of his successful composing career. At Weimar, too, in 1894 he conducted the premiere of his first opera, Guntram, with his fiancee Pauline de Ahna in the leading soprano role. She had become his singing pupil in 1887, and they were married in September 1894. Pauline's tempestuous, tactless, and outspoken personality was the reverse of her husband's aloof and detached nature, and her eccentric behaviour is the subject of countless anecdotes, most of them true. Nevertheless the marriage between them was strong and successful; they adored each other and ended their days together 55 years later.
The years 1898 and 1899 saw the respective premieres of Strauss's two most ambitious tone poems, Don Quixote and Ein Heldenleben ( A Hero's Life). In 1904 he and Pauline, who was the foremost exponent of his songs, toured the United States, where in New York City he conducted the first performance of his Symphonia Domestica (Domestic Symphony). The following year, in Dresden, he enjoyed his first operatic success with Salome, based on Oscar Wilde's play. Although Salome was regarded by some as blasphemous and obscene, it triumphed in all the major opera houses except Vienna, where the censor forbade Gustav Mahler to stage it.
In 1909 the opera Elektra marked Strauss's first collaboration with the Austrian poet and dramatist Hugo von Hofmannsthal. Strauss wrote the music and Hofmannsthal the libretti for five more operas over the next 20 years. With the 1911 premiere of their second opera together, Der Rosenkavalier, they achieved a popular success of the first magnitude. Their subsequent operas together were Ariadne auf Naxos (1912; Ariadne on Naxos), Die Frau ohne Schatten (1919; The Woman Without a Shadow), and Die agyptische Helena (1928; The Egyptian Helen). But in 1929 Hofmannsthal died while working on the opera Arabella, leaving Strauss bereft.
After 1908 Strauss lived in Garmisch, in Bavaria, in a villa that he built with the royalties from Salome. He conducted in Berlin until 1919, when he agreed to become joint director, with Franz Schalk, of the Vienna State Opera. His appointment proved unfortunate, since it coincided with a postwar mood that relegated Strauss and similar late Romantic composers to the category of “old-fashioned.” Strauss was neither interested

Jackie Cooper dies at 88
Famed child star became busy TV director

Jackie Cooper, the first child star of the talkie era who continued acting into adulthood and also had a career as a TV director, producer and executive, died Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 88.
At the age of nine, Cooper received an Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance in 1931's "Skippy."As of 2011, Cooper's Oscar nomination for "Skippy" was the earliest nom in any Academy Award category in which the nominee was still living. He was also the youngest nominee ever, and until 13-year-old Keisha Castle-Hughes was nominated for best actress in 2004, he was the only person to earn a best actor/actress nom before his/her 18th birthday (others have been nominated in supporting categories).
He was born John Cooper Jr. in Los Angeles; his father abandoned the family when he was a toddler. A nephew (by marriage) of film director Norman Taurog, Cooper began appearing in short comedy films with Lloyd Hamilton and Bobby Clark when he was 3. It was Taurog who would direct him in "Skippy."
He was one of the most prominent stars in a number of "Little Rascals" or "Our Gang" films produced by Hal Roach in 1930 and 1931 and scored again with 1931 sentimental boxing tale "The Champ," in which he starred with Wallace Beery. (That film was remade with Jon Voight and Ricky Schroder in 1979). Beery and Cooper starred in a series of films together at MGM including "The Bowery" and "Treasure Island"; the pair captivated movie audiences, but Cooper would later accuse Beery of seeking to undermine him.
Cooper continued to find roles as he aged into adolescence but did not regain his earlier stardom, replaced by the likes of Freddie Bartholomew and Roddy McDowall in the public eye. He did draw favorable notices for his performances in 1940's Booth Tarkington adaptation "Seventeen" and in 1942's "Syncopation."
Cooper served in the Navy during WWII, eventually attaining the rank of captain.He did not find much acting work immediately after the war, appearing in the 1947 comedy "Kilroy Was Here" with another former child star, Jackie Coogan.
Cooper soon found himself without a Hollywood contract for the first time since he was 3. He headed for New York and made his Gotham stage debut in a 1949 production of "Magnolia Alley" at the Mansfield Theater. Soon thereafter, he toured the U.S. as Ensign Pulver in "Mr. Roberts" and playd the role in the London production in 1951.
Transitioning to television, he found occasional roles on "Schlitz Playhouse," "Robert Montgomery Presents" and "Studio One in Hollywood," among many others.In 1955 he began a three-year run as star of NBC sitcom "The People's Choice." Subsequently Cooper starred in the title role of a Navy doctor in CBS sitcom "Hennesey," from 1959-62, drawing Emmy noms for best actor in a comedy two years running.
He was already beginning to extend his skill set, directing three episodes of "The People's Choice" and four episodes of "Hennesey" and producing an episode of the latter.
Cooper next became an executive. He was hired in 1964 as VP of program development for Columbia Pictures' TV division (formerly Screen Gems). For five years he was responsible for packaging series (such as "Bewitched") and selling them to the networks.
After exiting Col in 1969, Cooper spent more time directing for TV than acting.In 1971, however, he appeared in the fairly daring ABC telepic "Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring." He and Eleanor Parker played the parents of Sally Field, who runs away but eventually returns only to discover that establishment hypocrisy remains. In 1975 he made a last effort at a series-regular role, playing a news reporter in ABC's "Mobile One." Cooper was still guesting on the likes of "Hawaii Five-O" and "Ironside," but he directed 13 episodes of "MASH" in 1973-74, winning an Emmy for comedy directing for one of them.
He helmed an episode of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"; five episodes of "The Rockford Files"; five of "Black Sheep Squadron"; three of "Quincy, M.E."; and three of "The White Shadow." For directing the pilot of "The White Shadow" he won an Emmy.
In 1978 he appeared in the feature film role for which he would become best known to generations unaware of his work as a child many decades earlier: newsman Perry White in "Superman," starring Christopher Reeve. He returned for "Superman II," "Superman III" and 1987's "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace."
He continued directing during the 1980s, with four episodes of "Sledge Hammer!"; two of "Magnum, P.I."; four of "Cagney and Lacey"; two of "Simon and "S
