Hermann Carl Julius Scherchen (* June 21, 1891 in Berlin; † June 12, 1966 in Florence) was a German conductor and composer.
After early violin lessons in childhood, Scherchen studied at the Berlin Musikhochschule. In 1907 he began his musical career as a violist in the “Blüthner Orchestra”, the predecessor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra (today: Konzerthausorchester Berlin), and as a temporary assistant with the Berliner Philharmoniker and in the Krolloper. He learned the craft for his later profession of conductor mainly as an autodidact.Two formative events occurred in the 1910s. Decisive for his professional and artistic development was his encounter with Arnold Schoenberg in 1911, with whom he worked as a conductor for the premiere of his Pierrot lunaire (1912), which he also conducted on a tour the following year. In 1914 he was employed in Jūrmala as a conductor of the Riga Symphony Orchestra. After he had been interned by the Russians as an enemy foreigner in Latvia at the beginning of the First World War, where he gained further experience as a conductor, violist and teacher and also devoted himself to the composition of chamber music and songs, he witnessed the Russian October Revolution as a civilian prisoner of war in a camp in the Urals in 1917.
in 1918 he translated the working-class song Brüder, zur Sonne, zur Freiheit from Russian into German. Impressed by the musical avant-garde of Russia, he returned to Berlin. He founded a string quartet (“Scherchen Quartet”), the music magazine for contemporary music Melos and the Neue Musikgesellschaft Berlin. In addition, he began his teaching career at the Hochschule für Musik Berlin and became the director of two workers’ choirs. In the following years he conducted the “Orchestra of the Concert Association” in Leipzig (1920/1921) and in Frankfurt am Main (1922-1924) as the successor of Wilhelm Furtwängler. He was director of the museum concerts of the Frankfurt Museum Society and worked in Winterthur (1922-1950), as general music director in Königsberg (1928-1931) and was also musical director of the local radio station until 1933. In Winterthur, he made the Stadtorchester Winterthur (now Musikkollegium Winterthur), funded by patron Werner Reinhart, known throughout Europe as a conductor.
