He received his university education in Lwów (now the Ukrainian city Lviv), and in Vienna. As a volunteer in the Polish independence movement from 1918 to 1920, Brzeziński saw action in the Battle of Lwów (Battle of Lwów (1918)) during the Polish-Ukrainian War and against Soviet forces in the final Warsaw campaign (Battle of Warsaw (1920)) of 1920. He entered the diplomatic-consular service of the new Polish Republic (Second Polish Republic), serving in Essen, Germany; Lille, France; Leipzig, Germany; Kharkov, in the Soviet Ukraine, and Montreal, where he lived after the Communist takeover in Poland (History of Poland (1939–1945)#Yalta and the Soviet Occupation (1943–45)) after World War II. thumb right Konti, circa 1905 (Image:Isidore Konti 3037246225.jpg) '''Isidore Konti''' (July 9, 1862 – January 11, 1938) was a Vienna-born (of Hungarian parents) sculptor. He began formal art studies at the age of 16 when he entered the Imperial Academy (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna) in Vienna where he studied under Edmund von Hellmer. ''Collecting Sculpture.'' Fall 2001. New York: John Graham & Sons, Inc., 2001. 17. In 1886 he won a scholarship that allowed him to study in Rome for two years. While there he developed a love of Renaissance art that was to affect the nature of his mature sculpture. Upon returning to Austria, Konti worked as an architectural modeler. In Serbia he performed in the city of Subotica in the variety show Alhambra; in the city of Zagreb in the Music Hall; in the city of Sarajevo in the Winter Garden. In November 1921, he signed a contract for performances in the cities of Graz and Vienna, Austria with the international circus Orpheus for 500,000 kronor plus travel expenses. He received his education at the universities of Berlin, Vienna, and Breslau, graduating in 1868. After having taken part in the Franco-Prussian war as assistant surgeon he settled in Breslau, and for the following two years was assistant to Heinrich Waldeyer (Heinrich Wilhelm Gottfried von Waldeyer-Hartz); from 1870 to 1874 to Lebert (Hermann Lebert), and then to Cohnheim (Julius Cohnheim), who he followed to Leipzig in 1878. There he became assistant professor of pathology at the university in 1879. In 1884 he was appointed professor of pathological anatomy at the Senkenbergsche Stiftung in Frankfort-on-the-Main, and received the title of "Geheimer Medizinal-Rat" in 1899. Seppi made the final of the Sunrise Challenger, defeating Gustavo Kuerten, Juan Martín del Potro, and Nicolás Massú, and then losing to Gaël Monfils. After Sunrise, Seppi struggled with his ranking outside the top 100. He surprisingly made his first ATP Tour final in Gstaad, where he defeated Stefan Koubek and Igor Andreev both in third-set tiebreakers. Seppi led 5–3 in the third set and had the opportunity to serve for the championship but failed to do so losing to Paul-Henri Mathieu 6–7, 6–4, 7–5. Seppi made his first semi final indoors in Vienna defeating two time defending champion Ivan Ljubičić along the way to complete the feat of at least making the semi finals of events played on clay, hardcourt, grass and indoors, eventually finishing in the top 80 for the third consecutive year. In Vienna, the idea of a radically new modern architecture had many theorists and proponents. An early use of the term ''modern architecture'' in print occurred in the title of a book by Otto Wagner, Otto Wagner. ''Moderne Architektur: Seinen Schülern ein Führer auf diesem Kunstgebiete.'' Anton Schroll. 1902. Otto Wagner. Translated by Harry Francis Mallgrave. ''Modern Architecture: A Guidebook for His Students to This Field of Art.'' Getty Center for the History of Art and the Humanities. 1988. ISBN 0226869385 who gave examples of his own work representative of the Vienna Secession with art nouveau illustrations, and didactic teachings to his students. Soon thereafter, Adolf Loos wrote ''Ornament and Crime'', and while his own style is usually seen in the context of the Jugendstil, his demand for "the elimination of ornament" joined the slogan "form follows function" as a principle of the architectural so-called Modern Movement that came to dominate the mid-20th Century. Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier provided the theoretical basis for the International Style (International Style (architecture)) with aims of using industrialised architecture to reshape society. Frank Lloyd Wright, while modern in rejecting historic revivalism, was idiosyncratic in his theory, which he conveyed in copious writing. Wright did not subscribe to the tenets of the International Style, but evolved what he hoped would be an American, in contrast to a European, progressive course. Wright's style, however, was highly personal, involving his particular views of man and nature. Wright was more poetic and firmly maintained the 19th century view of the creative artist as unique genius. This limited the relevance of his theoretical propositions. Towards the end of the century postmodern architecture reacted against the austerity of High Modern (International Style) principles, viewed as narrowly normative and doctrinaire. __NOTOC__ He was born in Vienna, where he studied the flute at the Vienna Conservatory (University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna). While holding various conducting posts in the city, he began to compose operettas.

Paur was born in Czernowitz, Austria, now Ukraine, and trained in Vienna before working as a conductor in Kassel, Königsberg and Leipzig. He then emigrated to the United States where he led the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and Pittsburgh Symphony. After returning to Germany, he went on to conduct Berlin State Opera. Paur was considered a serious conductor, favouring the works of Johannes Brahms, which were at the time considered heavy listening. 210px thumb Wilhelm Gericke (Image:Gericke.png) '''Wilhelm Gericke''' (18 May 1845 – 27 October 1925) was an Austrian-born conductor (Conducting) and composer who worked in Vienna and Boston.
