Robert Gilbert (musician)

Robert Gilbert (born Robert David Winterfeld) (September 29, 1899–March 20, 1978) was a German composer of light music, lyricist, singer, and actor. His father was Max Winterfeld, a composer and conductor who went by the artist nickname of Jean Gilbert, and his mother was a milliner. His brother was Henry Winterfeld, an author of children's books.


Robert Gilbert was a soldier during the last year of World War I, where he came in contact with socialist and communist ideas that the political awareness of the 1900s had aroused. After his service in the war he studied philosophy and art history in Berlin and in Freiburg and was engaged in political campaigns and demonstrations during this time.
