Ned Rorem

Ned Rorem (born October 23, 1923) is a gay American composer and diarist. He is most well known and praised for his song settings.

He was born in Richmond, Indiana. In 1969 he published his Paris Diary, which, with his later diaries, has brought him some degree of notoriety, as he is honest about his and others sexuality, describing his relationships with Leonard Bernstein and Noel Coward, his rejection of Samuel Barber and Virgil Thompson, and outing at least a few people (Aldrich, Robert and Wotherspoon, Gary (Eds.) (2001)).
