Joe Offer Obit: André Previn (1929-2019) (31) RE: Obit: André Previn (1929-2019) 28 Feb 19

His former wife Dory Previn (1925-2012) was married to him 1958-1970. Dory was more closely connected to Folkdom. Sez Wikipedia:
    In 1968 André Previn had fully moved from composing film scores to conducting symphony orchestras, most notably the London Symphony Orchestra. While in London he began an affair with 23-year-old actress Mia Farrow, who was working on the film A Dandy in Aspic. In 1969 Dory Previn discovered that Farrow had become pregnant by her husband, which led to their separation. Their divorce became final in July 1970. André Previn subsequently married Farrow. The betrayal led to Previn being hospitalized again, where she was treated with electroconvulsive therapy. This seemed to change her outlook as a songwriter, making her more introspective. She subsequently expressed her feelings regarding Farrow and the end of her marriage in the song "Beware of Young Girls" on her 1970 album On My Way to Where.
