Prof. Günther Szkokan
Until his retirement on September 1, 2001, Günther Szkokan concentrated his efforts on orchestral performance, but for a time he was a coach for the National Youth Orchestra and was also a member of Willi Boskovsky's "Mozart Ensemble". For his artistic achievements he was awarded the Gold Medal of Service to the Province of Salzburg in 1989, as well as the professional title of "Professor" in 1992. In 1995 he was presented with the Honorary Ring of the Vienna Philharmonic. At his funeral at Vienna's Main Cemetery on January 4, 2012, concertmaster Werner Hink, Michal Kostka, Peter Pecha, and Friedrich Dolezal paid the last respects on behalf of the Vienna Philharmonic with the Andante Cantabile from Wolfgang Mozart's String Quartet in C major, KV 465. Professor Günther Szkokan faithfully performed his professional duties, in a quiet and humble manner, contributing a valuable service to the coherence of our association.
