The violinist and conductor Peter Guth has followed the tradition of Johann Strauss in directing a symphony orchestra with a violin in his hand. Trained in Vienna, Peter Guth later studied for three years in Moscow as a pupil of David Oistrakh and made his first international appearance as a soloist and with the Vienna Trio as first prizewinner in the Munich ARD Competition. As a conductor he has appeared with more than fifty different orchestras. Among operas he has directed is Strauss’s A Night in Venice in its original version, with a cast of the greatest distinction. Peter Guth is active as a teacher, has a great interest in new music and is leader of the ORF Symphony Orchestra. He is director of the Vienna Symphony Johann Strauss Ensemble and the Vienna Strauss Soloists, and is well-known for his frequent radio and television appearances, his recordings and his work in the concert-hall which has taken him as far afield as Japan and the United States of America.
