The violonist Saschko Gawriloff, was born in 1929 in Bulgaria. At 18, he was already engaged as first violin with the Dresden Philharmonic, and, one year later, he was again first violin with the Berlin Philharmonic. In 1953, he won the first prizes of the International Soloists Contests of Berlin and Munich. Since he was 20, his concerts in Germany and abroad are crowned with a great success. He collaborated to the writing of Ligeti's violin concerto which was dedicated to him. From 1966, he followed a teaching career.
Julius Patzak (1898-1974), of whom this is the first recording as a conductor, is undoubtedly the most famous tenor of German language. During his long and brilliant career, he sang, on the most prestigious scenes of Europe and under the most famous conductors, the most famous tenor roles of the opera. His art as a Lieder or oratorio singer is universally praised. He was named in 1949 professor with the High School of Music of Vienna. Only some rare music lovers know that before making his extraordinary debuts as an opera singer, Patzak had very seriously planned to follow a career of conductor, for which he was particularly gifted. Its tempting interpretation of the "Haffner" Serenade makes us know a new face of the musical personality of this great artist.
