Ferdinand Leitner (1912 - 1996)

Ferdinand Leitner was a pupil at the Berlin High School for Music from 1926 to 1931, studying composition with Franz Schreker and conducting with Julius Prüwer, who had in turn studied with Brahms and Hans Richter; other contacts during this period were with the pianist Artur Schnabel and the conductor Karl Muck. Having begun his professional musical career as an accompanist to both singers and instrumentalists, among those with whom he worked during this period were the violinist Georg Kulenkampff and cellist Ludwig Hoelscher; Leitner also assisted Fritz Busch at the 1935 Glyndebourne Festival. His first permanent engagement as a conductor was at the Theater am Nollendorfplatz, in Berlin, from 1943 to 1945.
