Ricardo Odnoposoff

Although Ricardo Odnoposoff, son of Russian immigrants in Argentina, spent only four years as concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra it was an important part of his training; he had studied at the Berlin Hochschule für Musik with Carl Flesch and was appointed following his success in the first International Competition for Voice and Violin in Vienna in 1932. He ‘cut his teeth’ on solo opportunities forthcoming from his association with the orchestra and continued in this rôle until the 1937 Ysaÿe Competition. Here, in a ‘duel’ between himself and David Oistrakh, Odnoposoff came second amid rumours of fixing by a Soviet juror, but had made such a mark that offers of work soon came. He toured extensively (effectively exiled from his adopted Austria during the Nazi occupation because he retained Argentinian citizenship), visited Argentina in 1940 and in 1942 moved to New York. In 1956 Odnoposoff returned to Vienna, becoming professor at the Conservatory in 1957. Despite his extensive teaching work he continued performing widely. His last appearance with the Vienna Philharmonic was in 1965 playing the première of Theodor Berger’s Violin Concerto under Eugene Ormandy.
