Ralph Rainger

Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.

Ralph Rainger, nato Ralph Reichenthal (New York, 7 ottobre 1901Palm Springs, 23 ottobre 1942), è stato un compositore e pianista statunitense, noto soprattutto come autore di colonne sonore.

Biografia

Dopo la laurea conseguita alla Brown University Law School (New Jersey) sul finire degli anni venti, più per compiacimento verso i genitori che per convinzione alla carriera legale, che svolse per soli due anni in uno studio di Newark.

Successivamente intraprese tutt'altra attività, entrando nello staff orchestrale di Paul Whiteman in qualità di pianista e arrangiatore.

Ma il successo arrivò grazie alla sua prima composizione, Moanin' Low (1929), che divenne un brano popolare a livello nazionale grazie alla cantante (e attrice) Libby Holman[1].

Ingaggiato dalla Paramount come compositore di colonne sonore sfornò, in coppia con Leo Robin, numerose canzoni di successo.

In seguito con il suo team passò alla 20th Century Fox svolgendo prevalentemente la propria attività a Hollywood fino alla sua prematura scomparsa a soli 41 anni a causa di un incidente aereo.

Vnse nel 1939 un Oscar con il brano Thanks for the Memory (dal film The Big Broadcast), canzone ripremiata alla memoria nel 1989 con un ASCAP Award[2].

Ottenne due nomination sempre al premio Oscar, la prima nel 1935 come migliore canzone originale con Love in Bloom contenuta nel film She Loves Me Not, la seconda nel 1940, con Faithful Forever dal film I viaggi di Gulliver.
