JAN KUBELIK - VIOLINIST

Perfect, boldly fountain pen signed Rotary postcard photograph of the Czech violin virtuoso c. 1900.  On the verso in pencil in another hand, Kubelik the famous violinist autographed for Stubert H. Harvey 1905, 20 June, 1905, Kubelik’s Jubilee Concert, Queen’s Hall, 19th June, 1905.

Kubelik (1880-1940) was one of the true legends of the fiddle prior to Heifetz reaching the West.  He was a pupil of Weber, Ondricek and Sevcik in Prague.  Made his touring debut in 1898 and his British debut with Hans Richter in 1900.  He reached the U.S. the following year.  By 1902 he had made so much money that he was able to bring the Czech Philharmonic to London to support his concerts!  He recorded prolifically and a live concert at Carnegie Hall in 1935 is available.  After 1920 with the success of Heifetz, like Mischa Elman, his career was never quite the same.

A superb example!
