Robert SCHOLZ (XIAO Zi) was born in Steyr, Austria in 1902. He grew up surrounded with the piano playing of his older brother Heinz from an early age. He began studying with world-renowned pianist Friedrich Wührer at the age of 19. That same year he was also accepted into the Mozarteum University of Salzburg in Austria, where he studied piano. He and his brother Heinz devoted themselves to researching and studying Mozart, and they eventually published the first authoritative collection of Mozart’s works for piano. He immigrated to the US in 1938 at the outbreak of World War II, and eventually became a naturalized citizen. In 1963, the US State Department invited him to teach in Taiwan as part of a scholarly exchange program. He taught numerous students and conducted a number of orchestras during the more than two decades that he lived in Taiwan. He died in Taipei in 1986.
