Viktor Ullmann

born: 1 January 1898
died: 1944
country: Austria

Viktor Ullmann was born in Tešín in Moravian-Silesia, but grew up in Vienna, where he studied with Schoenberg. In 1919 he moved to Prague and assisted Zemlinsky at the New German Opera. Before his time at Theresienstadt he composed two operas, a powerful piano concerto and chamber music. In the ghetto, as well as Der Kaiser von Atlantis and the String Quartet No 3, he composed songs and three piano sonatas (the last of these, his Piano Sonata No 7, was also intended as the short score for a projected symphony, later orchestrated by Bernhard Wulff).
