Joseph Keilberth (1908 - 1968)

Born into a musical family, Joseph Keilberth studied music in his native city of Karlsruhe, joined the Karlsruhe Opera as a répétiteur in 1925, and became its chief conductor in 1935. During the late 1930s he also conducted frequent opera broadcasts for Stuttgart Radio, became chief conductor of the German Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague in 1940, and during World War II also conducted at the opera houses of Hamburg and Berlin (the Staatsoper). Following the end of the war he was appointed chief conductor in 1945 of the Dresden State Opera and of its orchestra the Dresden Staatskapelle, remaining with them until 1951. He assisted with the foundation of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, which was based upon the membership of his old orchestra the German Philharmonic Orchestra of Prague, and was the orchestra’s chief conductor between 1950 and 1968. He toured extensively with this orchestra, throughout Europe and to North and South America, also becoming conductor of the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra in 1950 and first conductor at the Munich State Opera in 1951.
