“Stefi Geyer was a Hungarian violinist who was considered one of the leading violinists of her generation.
Born in 1888 in Budapest, she was the daughter of Josef Geyer, a police doctor who played the violin himself. When she was 5 years old she started playing the violin, with remarkable results for someone who had not practiced at all. She subsequently studied under Jenő Hubay.
Béla Bartók and Othmar Schoeck, who were both in love with her, wrote violin concertos for her. Bartók's first violin concerto was published only after both he and Geyer had died. Willy Burkhard dedicated his 1943 violin concerto jointly to Geyer and Paul Sacher.”
