Hungarian Violinist Jelly d'Arányi was Born in 1893

She played an important role in discovering Schumann's "lost" Violin Concerto in D minor, for which she gave the UK premiere with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 1938

 

The grandniece of virtuoso Joseph Joachim, Jelly d'Arányi premiered a number of important works that were also dedicated to her — including Bartok’s 1st and 2nd Violin Sonatas, Ravel’s Tzigane, Vaughan Williams’ Concerto Accademico, and Holst’s Concerto for 2 Violins, Op. 49.

d'Arányi began her violin studies at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music in 1901 studying with Wilhelm Grünfeld — concertmaster of the Budapest Opera — and later studied with Jenő Hubay — the first violinist of the Budapest Quartet.

She made her solo debut in Haslemere, England in 1908, performing selections from Joachim's arrangements of Brahms' Hungarian Dances.

Despite prejudice and poverty during the outbreak of World War 1, d'Arányi continued to perform chamber music with family and friends. One of these concerts included a recital held at Wigmore Hall — known as the Bechstein Hall at the time — with d'Arányi performing Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Major.

She played an important role in discovering Schumann's "lost" Violin Concerto in D minor, for which she gave the UK premiere with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 1938.
