Schneiderhan Quartet

8.99 € 4.49 €

Wolfgang Schneiderhahn (1915-2002) began his international concert career as a major violin talent in the 1930s, having been appointed as concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony. In 1938, he formed his Quartet with Otto Strasser, violin; Ernst Morawec, viola; and Richard Krotschak, cello. The ensemble endured until 1951, after which Schneiderhahn resumed his solo career. All the recordings here were made for German Reichs-Rundfunk-Gesellschaft in 1944 and have never been published before. These are certainly amongst the earliest of the group’s surviving performances and will appeal strongly to its many admirers.
