Karl Böhm (1894 - 1981)

Karl Böhm was born in Graz in Austria of German-Bohemian descent through his father (Böhm may be translated as meaning ‘Bohemian’), and of French-Alsatian lineage on his mother’s side. His uncle, General Stiger-Steiner, had been a Minister for War in the Austrian government, while his father was a lawyer and, although an active amateur musician and friend of the conductor Hans Richter, believed that if his son wished to pursue a musical career he should also possess a professional qualification. Thus Böhm studied law at the University of Graz, while also taking lessons in piano and theory at the Graz Conservatory. He went on to study at the Vienna Conservatory between 1913 and 1914 with Eusebius Mandyczewski, who had been a close colleague of Brahms, and with Guido Adler. Böhm served in the Austrian army during World War I, returning to civilian life after sustaining an injury. He continued his twin-track career, on the one hand working as a répétiteur from 1917 at the Graz Opera and on the other continuing his legal studies, receiving a doctorate in law from the University of Graz in 1919.
