Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt (1900 - 1973)

Hans As a child Schmidt-Isserstedt learnt to play the violin, and went on to study at the Berlin High School for Music and Berlin University, where the subject of his doctoral dissertation was the Italian influence upon instrumentation in Mozart’s youthful operas. As was the case with many other significant figures in twentieth-century music, he decided to become a conductor after hearing Nikisch in concert. He began his musical career as a répétiteur at Wuppertal from 1923 to 1928, where he also played in the orchestra as a violinist and where his opera Hassan gewinnt received its first performance in 1928. This period was followed by a typical series of appointments as he worked his way up the musical ladder in Germany: conductor at Rostock from 1928 to 1931, and at Darmstadt from 1931 to 1933; first conductor at Hamburg from 1935 to 1942; and finally chief conductor at the Deutsche Oper, Berlin from 1943 to 1944.
