Jochum (1902-1987) studied conducting with Siegmund v. Hausegger at the Hochschule fr Musik in Munich. After he graduated, he was hired as a repetiteur at the Bavarian Staatsoper and also as an assistant conductor in Mnchengladbach making his debut at a conductor with the Munich Philharmonic in 1926. A guest appearance at the Kiel Opera led to a three year engagement as a staff conductor. Mannheim hired Jochen for the 1929-1930 season, which led to his engagement as the Generalmusikdirektor of the town of Duisberg until 1932. His first major post was as the Chief Conductor of the Berlin Radio Symphony in 1932; which led to 16 guest conducting appearances with the Berlin Philharmonic. Two year later he was made Generalmusikdirektor of the Hamburg Staatsoper and Philharmonic, a position he held until 1949. Jochum was such a strong conductor that he was never in danger of being fired by the Nazis and never joined the Nazi Party, so after the War he retained his position. One of the very few conductors able to do so without interruption. He returned to his hometown of Munich in 1949 where he led the Bavarian Radio Orchestra until 1960. During this time he accepted guest conducting appearances, including his first at the Bayreuth Festspiele in 1953. He begun an association with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 1958 and from 1961 to 1964 he was the co-conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam with Bernard Haitink. He also accepted two other positions during his life, Music Director of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra from 1969-1973 and Laureate Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra from 1977-1979.

 

Jochum was one of the great conductors of the Romantic school during the 20th Century, in particular the Bruckner symphonies which he recorded on Deutsche Grammophon. He also made legendary recordings of the Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and Richard Strauss symphonies, as well as the orchestral music of Bach, Haydn and Mozart. Most of his studio recordings have gone on to several formats and are considered to be among the best of the 20th Century in the DG catalog.
