ロベルト・シュトルツ (1880 - 1975)
His first attempts to establish himself in the United States as a composer were not crowned with success. His luck changed for the better when in 1941 violinist Jack Fischberg asked him to stand in for Bruno Walter as conductor at a Johann Strauss concert given by the New York Philharmonic.
The concert, " Night in Vienna" at Carnegie Hall was a smash hit, and recording contracts and commissions from radio stations for film music (for example "Zwei Herzen im Dreivierteltakt", plays, and concerts followed. " Night in Vienna" went on tour across the U.S., and remained a fixture on Robert Stolz's musical calendar long after he had returned to Vienna. Robert Stolz died in Berlin on June 27, 1975.
