Gérard Schaub, flute

This is an anthology with selected perfomances from Gèrard Schaub's career


From the booklet :

Gèrard Schaub was born in Winterthur in Switzerland. As a boy, he played flute and various other instruments, including the xylophone, in the wind band of his home town. Eventually his interest in the flute came to dominate, and at the age of seventeen he became a student of the renowned flutist Aurële Nicolet in Winterthur. A couple of years later he moved on to study with Andrè Jaunet in Zûrich. At the same time he was studying to be a lithographer, a profession he pursued briefly. His employer was a great music lover, and allowed young Gèrard time off to go to his flute lessons. In 1951 he was accepted to study at the Music Conservatory in Paris under Gaston Crunelle. When he won his degree in 1953, it was with a first prize from the Conservatory.

Gèrard Schaub was subsequently principal flutist in several European orchestras including the Dresden Philharmonic, the Leipzig Gewandhausorkestern, and the Salzburg Mozarteum. In 1957 he moved to Göteborg, Sweden to be principal flutist with the Göteborg Symphony orchestra, a position he held until he retired in 1996. In addition to the everyday rountine of rehearsals and concerts with the Göteborg Symphony at the Göteborg concert hall, Gèrard Schaub accompanied the orchestra on tours all over the world, and contributed to a large number of recordings. As a soloist, Gèrard Schaub has performed at concerts and on the radio in Sweden and elsewhere, including Berlin, Leipzig, Prague, Frankfurt, Madrid, Salzburg and, of course, in Switzerland.

Gèrard Schaub has taught at the School of Music, Göteborg University since 1959, and in 1983 the government bestowed upon him the title of Professor. Many of his students have gone on to become successful flutists themselves in Swedish orchestras and elsewhere. Gérard Schaub has been a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music since 1995.

Gèrard Schaub has always been a great lover of chamber music (the local phone book, incidentally, lists "chamber musician" as his profession), which has been a great advantage to his students at the College. His lessons in chamber music have always been marked by their outstanding musical quality and his enthusiasm, in equal measure. "Oh, this music is wonderful!" is an expression his students and colleagues will always associate with him. He was active in a number of chamber ensembles, most notably Ars Intima, and he has also performed a large number of works for solo flute, often by contemporary composers. Gèrard Schaub has always been interested in the lastest music. He has cooperated with many Swedish and Nordic composers, some of whom have written pieces especially for him, many of which he has also premiered. This CD contains pieces for solo flute written by composers from the Swedish west coast, plus a number of radio recordings. Gèrard Schaub performs here with other well-known western Swedish musicians.

It is our hope that this CD reflects both a number of sides of the talent of Gèrard Schaub and a number of aspects of the western Swedish cultural heritage.
