Deems Taylor
Composer

Biography
Deems Taylor (December 22, 1885 – July 3, 1966) was an American composer, music critic, and promoter of classical music. Despite planning to become an architect he began composing music with minimal training. Earning recognition for his earlier vocal works he joined the circles of prominent writers, actors, and critics and was hired as a music critic for New York World in 1921. Though his music was often overshadowed by his work as a broadcaster and commentator he is known for his composition's witty and entertaining style, resisting the influence of progressive trends and often deemed post-Romantic. Though meticulously written and orchestrated, his conservatism may ultimately have stunted his fame as a composer.
