Bio - Fritz Reiner

Fritz Reiner

Born December 19, 1888, Budapest, Hungary.
Died November 15, 1963, New York City.

CSO Music Director (1953-1962)
CSO Musical Advisor (1962-1963)

Fritz Reiner studied at the music academy in Budapest. His conducting debut was sudden-when the staff conductor at the Budapest Opera was taken ill, Reiner (then its young rehearsal coach) was thrust onto podium to direct that evening's performance of Bizet's Carmen. His full command of the situation subsequently led to his appointment as first conductor at the Laibach (now Ljubljana) National Opera.
