Ludovit Rajter was born in 1906 and studied at the Vienna Hoschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst under Clemens Krauss and Alexander Wunderer, and with Franz Schmidt and Joseph Marx as his composition teachers. A period as assistant to Clemens Krauss at the Salzburg Mozarteum International Summer School was followed by composition study in Budapest Under Ernő Dohnányi. Two years later he was appointed conductor and, subsequently, first conductor of the Slovak Philharmonic, of which he was the co-founder in 1949, and as professor at the Musikhochscule.
During a career spanning over sixty years, Rajter has won a considerable international reputation, well-known both in the concert hall and for his recordings, which include the four symphonies of Franz Schmidt.
