KARL BOHM 1894 - 1981

 One of the most famous operatic conductors of the 20th century. He is most noted for his interpretations of Richard Strauss, Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner, Alban Berg and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart .

Karl Bohm was born in Graz, Austria, on August 28, 1894. The son of a lawyer, he studied law before he entered the Graz Conservatory and then the Vienna Conservatory. He left Vienna in 1921 when Bruno Walter called him to Munich. In 1927 he was appointed as chief musical director in Darmstadt. From 1931 to 1934 he fulfilled the same function at the Hamburg Opera and was appointed professor. He made his debut at the Vienna State Opera in 1933 and was appointed general manager of the Dresden State Opera the same year. He succeeded Fritz Busch, who had gone into exile, as the head of the Dresden Opera from 1934 to 1942.This was an important period for him in which he conducted first performances of works by Richard Strauss Die schweigsame Frau (1938), and Daphne (1938), which is dedicated to him. From 1943 to 1944 he directed the Vienna Opera. On the occasion of the 80th birthday of Richard Strauss, he conducted the festival performance of Ariadne on Naxos. In 1957 he conducted Don Giovanni at the Met and he gave many powerful and riviting performances there through the 1970's. Karl Bohm worked regularly with the world's finest orchestras, including the Vienna Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras. He died in Salzburg on August 14, 1981. It was said by some that in his later years (as his hearing became less acute) his orchestral textures sometimes overpowered the singers on stage during his legendary Richard Strauss operatic performances. However, it made for very exciting listening for enthusists of this legendary conductor.
