Axline Young


Webster Young is a prolific composer for tango, opera, ballet, orchestra, piano, solo strings, and solo guitar.
Young's family is related to Otto Harbach, the Broadway lyricist of the 1920'3 and 30's who wrote "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes".
Two documentary films have appeared featuring his music, both distributed by Galloping Films, Australia, entitled: "One for Shakespeare" (2008) and " A U-Tube Music Fair" (2009).
In 2008, Young began experimenting with Latin influenced music, especially music of the Argentinian Tango and Cuban Salsa dances. While working on his Latin-influenced orchestra music in 2010, the composer passed his Opus 100, and has in 2011 recently completed his Opus 122, a new tango for orchestra.
Webster Young and Eric Hyrst became the most prolific composer-choreographer team in the United States before the Martins-Torke collaboration at New York City Ballet (see the International Who's Who in Music, 1993-94 )
A documentary film about the collaboration of Hyrst and Young, called "Two for Ballet", was seen on many PBS stations in the US from 1993-95. The film is sold for educational distribution by Cinema Guild, New York, and is currently in the collections of many prominent American universities and colleges, and is in the Jerome Robbins Dance Collection, Lincoln Center Public Library, New York, NY.
