Biography:
[English version below]

Ruth Sch├Ânthal: Hamburg, 27.06.1924 - 11.06.2006, Scarsdale, NY
Ruth Sch├Ânthals Eltern waren aus Wien und sie behielt von ihrer Geburt bis an ihr Lebensende ihre ├Âsterreichische Staatsb├╝rgerschaft, selbst nach Annahme der US-amerikanischen Staatsb├╝rgerschaft. Sie war ein musikalisches Wunderkind und trat dem Sternschen Konservatorium schon im Alter von 6 Jahren bei. 1935 wurde sie gemeinsam mit allen anderen j├╝dischen Studenten des Konservatoriums verwiesen. 1938 emigrierte die Familie zun├Ąchst nach Stockholm, wo sie ihr erstes Werk - eine Sonatine f├╝r Klavier - ver├Âffentlichte, bevor sie 1941 ├╝ber die Sowietunion nach Mexico City emigierten. Dort setzte sie ihr Studium bei Manuel Ponce fort und machte sich bald als Pianistin und Komponistin einen Namen. Ein Treffen mit Hindemith in Mexico f├╝hrte von 1946 bis 1948 zu einem Studium an der Yale University. Nach ihrem Abschluss bei Hindemith reduzierte sie ihre T├Ątigkeit als Pianistin und widmete sich dem Komponieren. Sie nahm schlie├člich eine Stelle am Westchester Conservatory of Music an und war von 1979 - 2004 an der Fakult├Ąt der SUNY (State University of New York) t├Ątig. Sie kehrte erst 1980 nach Deutschland zur├╝ck, und obwohl sie nie eine dauerhafte R├╝ckkehr nach Deutschland oder ├ľsterreich in Erw├Ągung zog, war sie ein Jahr vor ihrem Tod im J├╝dischen Museum in Wien, wo sie mit einem Konzert geehrt wurde. Ihre Arbeit ist vielseitig, facettenreich und deckt alle Genres ab. Ihr Oeuvre beinhaltet ├╝ber 100 einzelne Kompositionen, darunter Opern und Ballette. In ihren letzten Jahren ├╝bergab sie ihren musikalischen Nachlass an die Akademie der K├╝nste in Berlin.

Ruth Sch├Ânthal: Hamburg, 27.06.1924 - 11.06.2006, Scarsdale, NY
Ruth Sch├Ânthal's parents were Viennese and her nationality since her birth in Hamburg has remained Austrian even after latterly taking American citizenship. She was a musical prodigy and placed in the Stern Conservatory at the age of six. In 1935 she, along with all other Jewish pupils, was expelled. The family immigrated first to Stockholm in 1938, where her first work, a Sonatina for piano was published before moving to Mexico City via the Soviet Union in 1941, where she continued her studies with Manuel Ponce, soon making a reputation both as pianist and composer. A meeting with Hindemith in Mexico led to studies with him at Yale University from 1946 until 1948. Over the years following completion of her studies with Hindemith, she reduced her activities as pianist in order to concentrate on composition. She eventually took on a position at Westchester Conservatory of Music and from 1979 - 2004, she served on the faculty of SUNY (State University of New York). She did not return to Germany until 1980, nearly forty years after her emigration, and though she never considered a permanent return to either Germany or Austria, she was a guest of the Jewish Museum in Vienna the year before her death where she was honoured with a concert. Her work is eclectic, multi-faceted and covering all genres. It is extensive and extends to over 100 individual compositions, including opera and ballet. During her final years, she handed over her musical estate to the Akademie der K├╝nste in Berlin.
