Karabtchewsky, Isaac, Brazilian conductor; b. São Paulo, Dec. 27, 1934. He studied in Brazil; then at the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg im Breisgau. Upon his return to Brazil in 1969, he became music director of the Brazil Sym. Orch. in Rio de Janeiro; also was a guest conductor in the U.S. From 1987 to 1994 he was chief conductor of the Vienna Niederösterreichisches Tonkünstler Orch. His conducting is marked by an expansively Romantic quality, much in the vein of the old Russian school of interpretation.
