Biography

Carl Schuricht (1880-1967) was a conductor born in Danzig (Gdansk).
He invented a clear, almost objective style of conducting, based on fast tempos and flexible, but cleanly articulated orchestral playing that became known over. Many modern conductors owe a lot to him.
Carl Schuricht was nominated the director of the Berliner Philharmonischer Chor in 1933. During that period the “Concert for Trautonium AND Orchestra” by Harald Genzmer was presented with Oskar Sala as soloist. Between 1943 and 1944 he was a principal guest conductor of the Dresdner Philharmonie, and in 1944 was appointed to be its music director. At the autumn of 1944 he left Germany to stay in Switzerland, and started to work with L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. After Second World II, in 1946 Carl Schuricht conducted Wiener Philharmoniker at the re-opening of the Salzburg Festival. He was honoured to get Bruckner medals in 1948 and 1949 and in 1953 also became honorary citizen of Wiesbaden.

Carl Schuricht was the main conductor when Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra made their first US tour in 1956. He gave his last concert with Wiener Philharmoniker at Salzburg Festival in 1965. Two years later, at the age of 86, he died in his home in Switzerland.
