Rene Leibowitz (1913 - 1972)

Having started to learn to play the violin when he was five years old, René Leibowitz developed quickly as a performer and between the ages of nine and thirteen he gave violin recitals in Warsaw, Prague, Vienna and Berlin. Although his father brought these activities to an end, wanting his son to lead a relatively normal life, Leibowitz had begun to study conducting while in Berlin, in addition to maintaining his skills as a violinist. After moving to Paris with his family in 1929 or 1930, he came into contact with several musicians who were close to Schoenberg, including the violinist Rudolf Kolisch and the composer Paul Dessau, and made his debut as a conductor in 1937 with the Chamber Orchestra of French Radio.
