Hide Profile

.

Goddard Lieberson (1911-1977) Lieberson was in 1945 Director of Masterworks Department at Columbia Recording Corporation and in 1954 Executive Vice-President of Columbia Records Inc. (both of those entities were subsidiaries of Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc.), then president of Columbia Records, and composer by training. In the 1940s, he introduced to the American public the long-playing records of classical repertoire and Broadway productions. His greatest legacy was original recordings of Broadway musicals and other productions, as well as studio cast recordings of major Broadway hits.

In 1946 he married ballet dancer and actress Vera Zorina; the marriage produced two sons, composer Peter Lieberson (1946-2011) and philosopher, writer and journalist Jonathan Lieberson (1949-1989).
