This violinist, arranger, composer and band leader was raised in Berlin. At the age of three he was given a toy violin by his father, himself a professional violinist. The gift was soon replaced by the real thing, and at the age of six he was on the cabaret stage of the Faun on Berlin’s Friedrichstrasse. At the age of 11 he played Mozart’s Violin Concerto In G Major on radio, and was soon performing in concert throughout Germany. When Zacharias was 17, he bought himself a Hammig instrument with the proceeds of a Fritz Kreisler Award. In 1941 he recorded a swing session at the Odeon Studio on Schlesische Strasse, but was drafted into the German army shortly afterwards. Zacharias continued to prosper with his mixture of contemporary pops and light classics, played in a relaxed, swinging style, with the ever-present fiddle.
