Julius Patzak

Patzak came from a solid middle-class family: his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been schoolteachers. After he had completed his own formal schooling, he undertook military service in Serbia. Acting on the advice of his father he then became a civil servant, working in the office of Vienna’s Youth Council; while at the same time, with the intention of becoming a conductor, he enrolled at the University of Vienna to study composition and conducting. His teachers included Franz Schmidt, Guido Adler, Egon Wellesz and Eusebius Mandyczewski.

After Patzak was heard performing in an amateur concert of the Viennese Schubert Society, despite having received no formal training as a singer he was offered and accepted a contract with the Liberec (Reichenberg) Theatre in Bohemia. He made his operatic stage debut there as Radamès / Aida in 1926 and during the following season, 1927–1928, was a member of the Brno (Brünn) Opera; after which he joined the Bavarian State Opera in Munich in 1928, remaining one of this company’s leading tenors until 1945.
