Josef Krips Autograph. Signed Photo with Dedication.

Josef Alois Krips ( 1902 - 1974 ) was an important Austrian conductor and violinist.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Krips was a pupil of Eusebius Mandyczewski and Felix Weingartner. In 1921 he became Weingartner's assistant at Vienna Volksoper and chorus master.

After the Anschluss of 1938 he was forced to leave Austria since his wife was Jewish. Krips moved to Belgrade , where he worked for a time with the local symphony orchestra.

Upon his return to Austria at the end of the war in 1945 Krips was one of the few conductors who were allowed to work, since he had not worked under the Nazi regime. He was the first conductor to lead the Vienna Philharmonic and the Salzburg Festival in the post-war period.

From 1950 to 1954 Krips was principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. Afterwards he led the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. He made his Covent Garden debut in 1963 and his Metropolitan Opera in 1966, becoming a frequent guest conductor from then on. In 1970, he became conductor of the Deutsche Oper in Berlin. Between 1970 and 1973, he was the principal conductor of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.
