(p.187) CHAPTER 11 Wieniawski
From Paris to Peoria

R. Allen Lott

Oxford University Press

The violinist Henryk Wieniawski, though at first in Rubinstein's shadow, soon developed his own following appreciative of his pure tone and phenomenal technique. Rubinstein's other assisting artists, the soprano Louise Liebhart and the contralto Louise Ormeny, were not as well received. Besides concerto appearances with orchestra, Rubinstein also performed in a series of chamber music concerts in New York and at a concert of the New York Philharmonic. Rubinstein's association with the Steinway firm was both musically and socially beneficial.

Keywords:   Henryk Wieniawski, Anton Rubinstein, Louise Liebhart, Louise Ormeny, New York Philharmonic, Steinway pianos
