Robert Schollum

Robert Schollum (1913–1987) was an Austrian composer, arranger, conductor, music teacher, music critic and musicographer.

Robert Schollum studied at the New Vienna Conservatory and at the Vienna Music Academy (piano and organ with Carl Lafite, music theory with Egon Lustgarten, composition with Joseph Marx, conducting with Rudolf Nilius). He then worked for decades in various musical positions. 1959–1983 Schollum held a lectureship and finally became Professor for Lied and Oratorio at what is now the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, where he also taught stylistic studies and vocal accompaniment.

Furthermore Schollum worked at the Austrian Radio (ORF) and as an active member of a number of committees and associations and was, among others, President of the Austrian Composers’ Association and the Austrian Association for Research into Vocal Music.

From 1958 Robert Schollum was commissioned by Prof. Dr. Heinrich Haerdtl for the Austrian Vanguard company. His numerous orchestral arrangements for the highly successful recordings with the Viennese opera singer Erich Kunz and the Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera under the baton of Anton Paulik for the Vanguard label enjoyed great popularity. Compofactur MusikVerlag publishes for the first time Schollum’s arrangements which were released 1961 on the Vanguard album »Best Loved German Songs« (VSD 2086) with the artists already mentioned.

The editions are based on Schollum’s autographs, which are held in the composer’s estate at the Music Collection of the Austrian National Library (ÖNB) in Vienna. Compofactur MusikVerlag is greatly indebted to the heirs of Robert Schollum – Benno and Walter Schollum – for their permission for publication as well as Dr. Andrea Harrandt from the Austrian National Library (ÖNB) in Vienna, who kindly provided reproductions of the autograph scores.

The arrangements by Robert Schollum are available as rental material at Compofactur MusikVerlag.
