about

“Zephyr” from Blumenleben, Op. 30
Hubay (1858–1937)

Born in Budapest, Jenő Hubay was a violinist, composer and teacher. He studied violin with Joseph Joachim and established himself in Europe as a soloist. Henri Vieuxtemps, regarded as the principal founder of the Franco-Flemish violin school, saw in him the continuation of his own artistry. He recommended Hubay for the prestigious position of Professor of Violin at the Brussels Conservatoire, a post which he himself and more recently Henryk Wieniawski had held. Hubay held the position from 1886 to 1890, during which time he composed “Zephyr”. It is the fifth of a set of six short pieces, known as Blumenleben (or The Flower’s Tale), based on a metaphoric love poem by the Hungarian aristocrat and one-armed pianist, Géza Zichy (1849–1924). It is a tale of a flower and a fickle butterfly soon attracted by a new blossom. “Zephyr” depicts the image and movement of the butterfly as it leaves the flower.
