Hans Lange (February 17, 1884 in Istanbul – August 13, 1960 in Albuquerque, New Mexico) was a German-American conductor and musician. Lange was educated in Prague and other European cities. Lange joined The New York Philharmonic Orchestra
as a violinist in 1927, but began soon to conduct as well. He became assistant of Arturo Toscanini
, and rehearsed almost all his performances. At that time, he also worked on his own as a conductor: besides numerous assignments as conductor of the New York Philharmonic in concerts at the Carnegie Hall until 1936, he recorded with the famous soprano Kirsten Flagstad
for HMV Records.
