Franz Konwitschny (1901 - 1962)

The son of a conductor, Franz Konwitschny studied at the German Music Society School in Brno (1921–1923) and then at the Leipzig Conservatory (1923–1925). Having started his professional career as a violinist and violist playing in various orchestras, including the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra under Furtwängler, he moved to Vienna in 1925, becoming the violist in the Fitzner String Quartet at the same time as teaching at the Volksconservatorium. He joined the Stuttgart Opera in 1927 as a répétiteur and quickly worked his way up to the position of first conductor (1930). After leaving Stuttgart in 1933 to become chief conductor at Freiburg, in 1938 he was appointed to the same position at the Frankfurt Opera, where in addition he had responsibility for the Museum Concerts.
