Resource Toolbox

Hungarian violinist born in Eged, Hungary, 1830 died at New York, May 15, 1898. He studied under Bö hm at the Vienna Conservatorium from 1842 to 1845. Banished from Austria for participation in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, he went to the United States, where for five years he led the life of an itinerant player. After his return to Europe in 1853 he sojourned for a time at Weimar, where he received the benefit of Liszt's instruction. In 1854 he became solo violinist to Queen Victoria. He obtained his amnesty in 1860 and returned to Hungary, being soon afterward appointed soloist to the emperor Francis Joseph. In 1865 he made a brilliant tour through France, Germany, Belgium, and Holland. From 1871 to 1877 he was in Paris, whence two years later he proceeded to London and then to the United States, Canada, and Mexico. A concert tour round the world was undertaken by him in 1886, in the course of which he visited Japan, China, Cochin-China, and the Cape of Good Hope.

Remenyi made numerous transcriptions of pianoforte pieces, such as Chopin's waltzes, polonaises, and mazurkas, and pieces by Bach, Schubert, and others, all of which were published under the title of "Nouvelle Ecole du Violon." His best original composition is his violin concerto.
