Löwe, Ferdinand

Löwe, Ferdinand (born Vienna, Feb 19, 1865; died Vienna, Jan 6, 1925), Austrian conductor, pupil of Bruckner, a member of the circle of friends around Bruckner, and associated with editing the latter's symphonies.

Löwe was a teacher of piano, choral singing, and music education at the Vienna Conservatory (= Akademie) 1884-1922, and Director 1919-22 (after the enforced resignation of Wilhelm Bopp). In 1909, Schenker speaks of him as known to him personally "but sadly not artistically close to me." Why Schenker calls him "Director" in WSLB 14, August 19, 1908, is unknown.
