Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II not only gave us The Sound of Music; they gave us the sound of music. For several decades, when Broadway was at the pulse of mainstream culture and musicals provided most of the popular music of the day, Rodgers & Hammerstein were at the forefront of this Golden Age. Indeed to this very day, the classic musicals of Rodgers & Hammerstein — and the timeless songs they wrote for them — remain the epitome of the great American indigenous art form, musical theatre.
