Andrew Lloyd Webber, Baron Lloyd-Webber is a highly successful British composer of musical theatre, and also the elder brother of cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. Webber started composing at the age of six and published his first piece when he was 9.
Lloyd Webber has enjoyed great popular success, with several musicals that have run for more than a decade both in the West End and on Broadway. He has composed 13 musicals, a song cycle, a set of variations, two film scores, and a Latin Requiem Mass. He has also gained a number of honors, including a knighthood in 1992 followed by a peerage, seven Tony Awards, three Grammy Awards, an Oscar, an International Emmy, seven Olivier Awards, a Golden Globe, and the Kennedy Center Honors in 2006. Several of his songs, notably "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from Jesus Christ Superstar, "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" from Evita, "Memory" from Cats, and "The Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera have been widely recorded and were hits outside of their parent musicals. His company, the Really Useful Group, is one of the largest theatre operators in London.
