Born at Badgastein into a German-Austrian family of musicians, the violinist Gottfried Schneider made his first appearance as a soloist at the age of eleven. He studied in Salzburg, and then in Munich, Berne and New York, with Otto Büchner, Max Rostal and Ivan Galamian respectively. He won prizes in major international competitions, including the Carl Flesch in London and Jeunesses musicales in Belgrade, and after winning the Busch Brothers Prize he was invited by Rudolf Serkin to his Marlboro Festival. He has continued to enjoy a career of great distinction and has done much to bring to light, in his recordings, unjustly forgotten works and the compositions of contemporary composers.
