ALFRED WALTER

Alfred Walter was born in Southern Bohemia in 1929 of Austrian parents. He studied at the University of Graz and in 1948 was appointed assistant conductor to the Opera of Ravensburg. At the age of twenty-two he became conductor of the Graz Opera, where he continued until 1965, while serving at Bayreuth as assistant to Hans Knappertsbusch and Karl Bhm. From 1966 until 1969 he was principal conductor of the Durban Symphony Orchestra in South Africa, followed by a period of fifteen years as general director of Music in Mnster. In Vienna he has worked as guest conductor at the State Opera and in 1986 was given the title of Professor by the Austrian government. In 1980 he was awarded the Golden Medal of the International Gustav Mahler Society. For Marco Polo, Alfred Walter has recorded more than twenty volumes of the label’s Johann Strauss II Edition, works by von Schillings, von Einem, de Beriot, Reinecke and all the symphonic works of Furtwangler and Spohr.
