  • Ferencz Hegedüs violin* *Wigmore Hall Debut
  • Evelyn Suart piano
  • Frederick Peachey accompanist* *Wigmore Hall Debut

Hungarian-born violinist Ferencz Hegedüs studied at what is now the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest and made his performing debut in 1899. As famous for his $25,000 Guarneri violin as for his expressive interpretation, in this first appearance at Wigmore Hall he included a work of his own, as well as the rarely-heard Rhapsodie Hongroise by fellow Academy pupil Ferencz Gaal.

Sharing this concert and making her second appearance at Wigmore Hall was Leschetizky pupil Evelyn Suart, and accompanying Hegedüs was Frederick Peachey, a regular vocal and instrumental accompanist on the London concert scene at the time.
