Ernst Bachrich (1892-1942) - a strong voice in the 2. Viennese School

The 2. Viennese School was a cornerstone within the multitude of musical tendencies of the 1920's. The Schoenbergians did share some fundamental beliefs but they were individualists nevertheless. Ernst Bachrich, who studied with Schoenberg 1916-19, was one of them. In the following years Bachrich played a vital role in Schoenberg's "Society for Private Musical Performances" (as pianist and secretary). As a composer of songs, chamber and piano music he found his own voice. He conducted at the Vienna Volksoper and later (1928-32) in the Rhineland. In 1933 he returned to Vienna and contributed to the city's musical life as pianist, conductor and co-organiser of the concert series "Musik der Gegenwart". In 1938 he was blacklisted. He was deported to Izbica Ghetto (Poland) in May 1942 and killed in Majdanek shortly afterwards.
