Legende Op. 17 for violin and orchestra
Henryk Wieniawski 10th July 1835 Lublin, Poland, and died 31st March 1880, Moscow was a Polish violinist and composer. He was born into a Polish-Jewish family, whose father, Tobiasz Pietruszka, converted to Catholicism. His talent for playing the violin was recognized early on, and in 1843 he entered the Paris Conservatoire. After graduation, Wieniawski toured extensively, giving many recitals on which he was often accompanied by his brother J�zef on piano. In 1847 Henryk Wieniawski published his first opus, a Grand Caprice Fantastique, the start of a modest but important catalog of 24 opus numbers. When his engagement to Isabella Hampton was opposed by her parents, Wieniawski wrote L�gende, Opus 17; this work helped the parents change their mind and the couple married in 1860. At the invitation of Anton Rubinstein, Wieniawski moved to St. Petersberg, where he lived from 1860 to 1872, teaching many violin students and leading the orchestra and string quartet of the Russina Musical Society. From 1872 to 1874 Wieniawski toured the United States with Rubinstein. In 1875 Wieniawski replaced Henri Vieuxtemps as violin professor at the Concervatoire Royal de Bruxelles. During his residence in Brussels, Wieniawski’s health was in obvious decline, often stopping him in the middle of concerts. He gave a farewell concert in Odessa on April 1879 and died from a heart attack the following year in Moscow. He is interred in the Powazki Cemetary in Warsaw, Poland. Concert piece for Solo violin and orchestra in an easier version.
