Krips (1902-1974) studied conducting with Felix Weingartner and choral conducting with Eusebius Mandyczewski at the Vienna Conservatory. A regular conductor at the Wiener Volksoper and Staatsoper as well as holding the Generalmusikdirektor post at the Karlsruhe Oper prior to the Anschluss, he was forced to leave high tale it out of Vienna and conducted in Belgrade for a year. Due to the war, he worked as a clerk in a food factory until the end of World War II when he returned to Vienna and the Staatsoper. He was one of the conductors of the Vienna Staatsoper 1947 tour at Covent Garden in London. He left Vienna in 1950 to assume the Principal Conductor post with the London Symphony Orchestra. In 1953 he made his American debut with the Buffalo Philharmonic which was looking for a Music Director and he accepted the job for the 1954-55 season leaving London. He retained the post until 1963. He left Buffalo to lead the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra until 1970, when he accepted the post of Generalmusikdirektor of the Deutscheo Oper Berlin where he remained until 1973.

 

Krips recorded prolifically; some of the finest Mozart and Beethoven symphony recordings on record.
