Gerhard „Moshe“ Mendelson (*04.02.1913 in Berlin; † 14.03.1976 in Feldafing/Bayern) was a German
music-producer and label owner living and working in Vienna. He discovered among numerous others
Peter Alexander and Peter Kraus. In May 1946 Gerhard Mendelson founded the “Austrophon Schallplatten Studio GmbH”, a recording studio and the label AUSTROTON. He organized within a few months the almost dead music infrastructure including a pressing plant. 
The recording studio was located in rooms of the famous “Wiener Konzerthaus”.
Mendelson and his label “Austrophon-Serie, Elite-Special (Austroton)” developed fast into a center of German
language record production. In 1948 they started a connection with the austrian outlet of Swiss Turicaphon
In November 1954 he joined Kirt Feltz in Köln and the result was contract with POLYDOR on Jan. 1st 1955.
The “Austrophon-Schallplatten-Studio GmbH” today is still located in Vienna.
