GEORG TINTNER

Georg Tintner was born in Vienna in 1917. He began studying piano at the age of six and to compose soon after. From nine to thirteen he was a member of the Vienna Boys Choir, after which (at thirteen) he entered the Vienna State Academy where he studied conducting with Felix Weingartner and composition with Josef Marx. He became assistant conductor at the Vienna Volksoper at nineteen. In 1938 he fled the Anschluss, finally arriving in New Zealand. From there he went to Australia as resident conductor of the national opera. In 1966–67 Tintner was in Cape Town as musical director of the municipal orchestra; from there he went to London and Sadler Wells for three years with guest appearances with the London Mozart Players, the Bournemouth Symphony, Northern Sinfonia and the London Symphony for the BBC. He returned to Australia in 1971, and in the following years held several posts including that of senior resident conductor of the Australian Opera (Sydney Opera House). He conducted over 50 operas, about two-thirds from memory, and appeared many times with all Australian opera companies. Following his move to Canada at the end of 1987 to become music director of Symphony Nova Scotia, he was in great demand across the country. He appeared with all major Canadian orchestras, including several appearances with the Toronto Symphony and Montreal Symphony. He also appeared with the Michigan Opera Theatre in Detroit. He made many appearances at the Sydney Opera House and he taught masterclasses every year in the Czech Republic. In 1993 he was awarded the highly prestigious honour of the Grosse Ehrenzeichen, the Officer’s Cross of the Austrian Order of Merit, and also the Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation. In 1994 he was awarded the Silberne Ehrenzeichen (Silver Cross of Honour) by the province and city of Vienna. He was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Laws by Dalhousie University and by St Francis Xavier University, Canada, and in 1995 was made a Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. He died in 1999.
