"Wolfgang Schneiderhan, a violinist who began performing as a child, became a concertmaster at 17 and played with orchestras across Europe. A child prodigy, Mr. Schneiderhan quickly rose to international fame, performing with leading ensembles, including the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic. He also taught at the Salzburg Mozarteum and at the Vienna Academy of Music. Mr. Schneiderhan began studying violin with his mother at age 3 and first performed in public two years later. His first major concert was in Copenhagen, at age 11.
"He became concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra at 17, when he was already a distinguished interpreter of the music of Mozart and Beethoven. He was concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic from 1937 to 1949. In 1956 Mr. Schneiderhan founded the Lucerne Festival Strings ensemble in Switzerland with Rudolf Baumgartner, and in 1992 he initiated the Fritz Kreisler competition for young musicians at the Vienna Konzerthaus." - New York Times
