Hide Profile

A native of Vienna, Fritz Stiedry (1883-1968) had apparently been briefly acquainted with Werfel in Leipzig, around 1912; and then knew Werfel and Alma Mahler in Vienna around 1924, at which time Alma (as Stiedry recalls in a letter) was influential in his becoming director of the Volksoper. In her memoir Mein Leben, Alma mentions Stiedry among encounters in 1933. Erika Stiedry-Wagner was a singer and Fritz's wife; they were married in 1924. Fritz and Erika emigrated to the U.S. in 1938; they moved to Switzerland in 1960.
