Alexis Dukelsky

Alexis Dukelsky (better known by his pen name, Vernon Duke, in America) is famous for writing a series of hit songs, such as April in Paris and Taking a Chance on Love. He was accomplished and cosmopolitan in many different arenas. Born in present-day Belarus, reputedly of noble lineage, Dukelsky studied in Kiev, fled the Russian Empire during the Revolution. After a stay in Constantinople, he immigrated to America in 1921. He was befriended by George Gershwin and wrote his first songs in the early 1920s, but continued to compose classical music and write Russian poetry. He spent years in Paris, wrote a ballet, Zephyr and Flora, for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes and returned to America, where he wrote symphonies, an oratorio and music for Broadway, including Cabin in the Sky. He was also a talented artist.
