Sevcik, Otakar (1852-1934)
Bold autograph signature of the hugely influential Bohemian violinist and pedagogue. On an album page measuring 12 x 15.5 cm and dated Prague, May 27, 1904.
An important soloist and an ensemble player, Sevcik is chiefly remembered as the teacher of some of the greatest 20th century violinists including Jan Kubelík, Jaroslav Kocián, Efrem Zimbalist, Juan Manén, Marie Hall, Victor Kolar and Erika Morini. His violin studies and violin methods were published in several books and are still important and widely used as fundamental teaching tools.
