Collection Historical Note

Hubert Bauersachs, violin virtuoso, pianist, transcriber and composer was born at St. Louis, Mo., in 1882. He received his first musical instruction on the violin at the age of eleven under Dr. J. P. Nemours; three years later he was placed under the tuition of Signor Guido Parisi, who finished the Artists’ Course under the great Italian violinist and composer, Antonio Bazzini.

Edouard Reményi, the great Hungarian violinist and composer, upon hearing young Bauersachs play, prophesied he was destined to take rank with the greatest violinists. In 1901, Bauersachs played the D major concerto by Paganini with his own cadenza at a recital and he was given the Medal of Honor, finishing the Artist Course under Parisi.

After that period, Bauersachs adopted his own style of playing, which many believe identical to Paganini’s style, who was considered the greatest violinist the world has ever known. Expression is Bauersachs’ chief aim, yet technical difficulties are of no concern to him, as he takes an almost childish delight in conquering them.

Between the years of 1893 and 1901 he studied under Paul Mori, the Hungarian pianist and composer, and also studies harmony and composition under Louis Conrath, pianist and composer, who finished his musical education under Dr. Jadassohn of Berlin, Germany. Bauersachs appeared with great success upon the concert stage and he has written many compositions for violin, piano and voice.

Some of his violin compositions are so difficult that it takes the skill of the greatest violinist to master their technical impediments. Bauersachs’ compositions have been played at artists’ recitals, music teachers’ conventions and pupils’ recitals and have received the hearty endorsement of every artist and teacher who has heard them. His compositions are well known and have a large circulation.

— From an undated promotional brochure entitled, Biographical Sketch of Hubert Bauersachs.

Hubert Theodore Bauersachs was a native son to St. Louis, born on 5 May 1882 to Theodore and Lillie (nee Oltmann) Bauersachs. He received his general schooling in Webster Groves, Mo. Ernst Krohn described Bauersachs as a brilliant violinist and an active composer and publisher of violin music throughout the first part of the century. Bauersachs’ home, studio, and publishing company were located at 1829 and 1831 Warren Street in St. Louis. His compositions include waltzes, gavottes, and other romantic pieces with evocative titles. Bauersachs died on Feb. 7, 1964.
