Hermann Scherchen (German: Hermann Scherchen, June 21, 1891, Berlin – June 12, 1966, Florence) was a German conductor and music teacher, violist.

I learned to play the viola myself. In 1907-1910 he played in the Berlin Blütner Orchestra, then in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1911 he met Schoenberg, participated in the premiere of his “Moon Pierrot”. In 1914-1916 he conducted in Riga. He spent 1916-1918 in a Russian prison camp. In 1918 he returned to Berlin, founded a New Musical Society, and in 1919 created the magazine “Melos” dedicated to contemporary music. Among his students are Pierre Boulez, Karl Amadeus Hartmann (Scherchen is one of the authors of the libretto of his opera Simplicissimus, based on the novel by Grimmelshausen).

In 1933 he left Germany, led orchestras in Brussels, Vienna, etc. In 1958 he toured in Russia (the recording of Bach’s “Matthew Passion” from the BZK of the Moscow Conservatory has not been published).
