About David Popper

Popper's father was a Kantor in Prague and David was given the opportunity to study with Goltermann. He became a renowned virtuoso cellist who played with both the Hellmesberger Quartet and Hubay Quartet during his performing career. In 1863 Popper went on a major tour meeting Bulow in Germany. The latter insisted on accompanying the well deserving cellist in some of the remaining concerts of that tour. During the years of 1868 through 1873 Popper served the Vienna Court opera as their principal cellist. He later went on tour, finally settling in Budapest in 1896 where he resided and taught until his death. Popper composed and published approximately seventy five works for the cello exhibiting the potential warm tones of the violoncello, classical stylings, and requisite highly polished techniques. The "Requiem" for three cellos and orchestra was Popper's most important work. ~ Keith Johnson
