Leopold Ludwig

At the time of Leopold Ludwig’s birth, his home town Witkowitz, located in Moravia, was a part of the Hapsburg empire. Active as a church organist by the age of ten, he went on to study piano at the Vienna Academy of Music with Emil Paur between 1927 and 1930 and decided to seek a career as a conductor after hearing a radio broadcast from the 1931 Bayreuth Festival of Furtwängler conducting Tristan und Isolde. Having made his conducting debut in the Silesian town of Opava before moving on to Brno (then the capital of the province of Moravia/Silesia), he obtained his first major appointment in 1936 when he accepted the post of chief conductor of the Oldenburg Opera in northern Germany. Soon Ludwig was conducting as a guest in Berlin before moving to Vienna as a permanent conductor at the State Opera in 1939; here he stayed for four years before returning to Germany and to Berlin to take up a similar position with the Städtische Oper (later to become the Deutsche Oper).
