RUDOLF SCHWARZ, JOHN SHIRLEY QUIRK
Signatures of the 50s era classical musicians. Dated in 1966, Schwarz was a Auschwitz survivor.
Signatures: "Rudolf Schwarz/17-12-66", and on verso, "John Shirley-Quirk" 5¾x4¼ album leaf. Additional unidentified signer at lower margin on verso. Signed December 17, 1966. RUDOLPH SCHWARZ (1905-1994) debuted as a violist with the Vienna State Opera in 1922. Two years later, he conducted for the first time at Dusseldorf, the first of many performances throughout Germany, specializing in Wagnerian works. The Nazi laws permitted him to perform only for Jewish audiences after 1933. In 1939 he was imprisoned, and in 1941 sent to Auschwitz. Released from the death camp through the intervention of another German conductor, he endured life in other prison camps until 1945, suffering a broken shoulder blade which forced a change in his conducting style for the rest of his life. Immigrating to Britain after the war, he conducted many symphony orchestras, including those of the BBC, the City of Birmingham, Bournemouth, and the Northern Sinfonia. His recording of Mahler's Symphony #5 with the London Symphony Orchestra (1958) is highly praised. Schwarz was honored as a CBE in 1973. JOHN SHIRLEY QUIRK (1931-2014) is an English bass-baritone and violinist from Liverpool. He made his operatic debut in Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande at the Glyndebourne Festival in 1961. A member of the English Opera Group from 1964 to 1976, Shirley-Quirk is best known for his interpretations of Benjamin Britten. He currently teaches at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Left edge worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
