Jenö Hubay 1858 - 1937

Jenő Hubay, the brilliant violinist, composer and educator was considered the most well-known and acknowledged musician of Hungary for half a century. His name remains connected to the establishing of the world famous Hungarian violin school. His father was Károly Huber, the conductor and concert master of the National Theatre. It was from him that he learned the basics of playing the violin, after which he went on to study from Josef Joachim in Berlin. On advice from Franz Liszt he travelled to Paris in 1878 and soon he won over audiences all over Western Europe. At the age of 21 he changed his surname to Hubay to have a Hungarian sounding name. In 1882 he was appointed head of department at the Conservatoire Royale in Brussels, but on call from Franz Liszt he returned home and supervised violin education at the Conservatory of Budapest for half a century. He was also the director of the Conservatory from 1919 to 1934. His most famous students: Bram Eldering, Geyer Stefi, Ferenc Vecsey, József Szigeti, Emil Telmányi, Eddy Brown, János Koncz, Imre Waldbauer, Jenő Ormándy, Zoltán Székely, Ede Zathureczky, Endre Gertler, Lóránt Fenyves, Wanda Luzzato, Tibor Varga and Sándor Végh. From 1886 the Hubay-Popper Quartet was active in Budapest, the first world class Hungarian strings quartet, who were leading figures in the history of Hungarian chamber music for a quarter of a century. At their concerts Ernő Dohnányi, Wilhelm Backhaus, Leopold Godowski and Johannes Brahms have performed several times. In the "Green Salon" of his home with his wife and two sons, Tibor and Andor in 1929. Jenő Hubay, with his smooth manner, exceptional personality and intelligence created a wide circle of contacts. He was invited by kings, heads of states, artists and church leaders to their homes throughout Europe, his friends included Mihály Munkácsy, Zsigmond Justh, Jules Massenet, Benjamin Godard, Felix Weingartner and Joseph Krips.
