Rafael Jeroným Kubelík (29 June 1914 – 11 August 1996) was a Czech-born conductor and composer. Son of a well-known violinist, Jan Kubelík, he was trained in Prague, and made his debut with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 19. Having managed to maintain a career in Czechoslovakia under the Nazi occupation, he refused to work under what he considered a "second tyranny" after the Communist Czechoslovak coup d'état of 1948, and took refuge in Britain. He became a Swiss citizen in 1967.

Rafael Kubelik is watching Wimbledon when I enter his suite at the Savoy. Tennis fan?’ I ask, slightly surprised. But it’s the Mahler symphonies that impress me most. Mahler’s ironies are nowhere so pronounced as here, in the third movement of the First Symphony, where the funeral march turns into a down-and-dirty orgy, and in the second movement of the Fourth Symphony where the concertmaster, playing a cheap fiddle, delivers a migrant threat to sedate society
Alongside with Karajan, Bernstein and Solti, Rafael Kubelík is one of the great conductors of the second half of the 20th century. The successor of Eugen Jochum was Chief Conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks for quite a long time: from 1961 until 1979. With the internationally experienced Chief Conductor of Czech origin came the wonderful era Kubelík, as former oboist Gustav Meyer called it. It was a very fruitful chapter of the orchestra’s history. Kubelík knew how to fascinate the musicians with his passion and artistic expertise.
