Peter Rybar

Considered by many to be an outstanding all-round musician, Peter Rybar had a long and full career involving a good deal of recording and the promotion of works by composers such as Suk, Martinů, Bartók, Hindemith and Stravinsky. He also made seminal first recordings of the Goldmark Concerto, Viotti’s Violin Concerto No. 22 in A minor (a work favoured by Joseph Joachim) and Suk’s Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra.

Rybar was born in Vienna, his parents both Czech violinists, and brought to England in 1914. He was taught initially by his mother, a pupil of Ševčík who had summarily rejected his exercise-based method and taken herself to Brussels under César Thomson’s tutelage. Rybar spent some time in Geneva and Leipzig before studying violin with Karel Hofmann and composition with Josef Suk I, both of the Czech Quartet, at the Prague Conservatory and then with Carl Flesch in Paris. In Prague he gave the first performance of Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in the presence of the composer.
