Adolf Busch (1891 - 1952)

Despite not having been taught by him, Adolf Busch was seen by many as a natural successor to Joseph Joachim through his teachers Willy Hess and Bram Eldering—both pupils of Joachim. Busch’s German-school bowing, with minimal finger movement but great flexibility of wrist, won him admiration amongst critics who marvelled at his approach to phrasing and recognised his ethos which prized musical expression above technical showmanship.

Busch studied composition with Fritz Steinbach in Cologne and also learnt much from Hugo Grüters who later became his father-in-law. His Concerto for Orchestra (1929)—the first work of its genre—was, like his other compositions, heavily influenced by Max Reger. A handful of Busch’s works have been recorded, including his Violin Concerto and String Quartet, but are rarely heard in performance today.
