Picture: Zafer, David

London, 1934. With his exceptional skill and dedication both as a performer and a teacher, David Zafer has earned international acclaim as one of Canada's leading assets in the field of classical music. In addition to the refinement of his own talents as a performer he has, for more than 30 years now, focused with remarkable commitment and innovation on developing young Canadian musicians. From 1966 to 1999 he has been a Professor of Violin in the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto, where he is 'professor emeritus' at the present time. He has been founder and director of the Chamber Orchestra at the Toronto University until his retirement. David Zafer is required to give master classes in prestigious schools, such as the Menuhin School in Surrey (England); the Meadowmount Summer School; the British University of Columbia; the University of Rice in Houston (Texas), and he is invited regularly by the Superior School of Music Reina Sofía. Also he has directed the European Seminary of Strings in Budapest and he has given master lessons in Prague. In 1998, Mr. Zafer conducted the Real Chamber Orchestra of Seoul (Korea) and this concert was televised to all the country. For 25 years he has been titular conductor and violin professor of the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra and he has made tours with this orchestra to the Young Orchestras Festivals in Aberdeen (Scotland), Boston and Banff. In 1997, he recorded a very successfully CD with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra during a live performance in the Ford Center for the Performing Arts of Toronto. At the present time, he gives private classes and he goes on performing with different orchestras and chamber groups. Also he counts on innumerable commitments in different festivals. His new project is the Toronto Chamber Youth Orchestra, of very recent creation.

Biography

YSAYE, Eugène-Auguste

Picture: YSAYE, Eugène-Auguste

Liège, 1858 - Brussels, 1931. The Belgian violinist Eugene-Auguste Ysaÿe was among the leading virtuosi of his day, inspiring admiration rather than jealous rivalry from other great contemporary performers. Born in Lige in 1858, he was taught by his father, Nicolas-Joseph Isaye, a violinist and opera conductor, and entered the Lige Conservatoire in 1865, studying there with D. Heynberg. At the death of his mother in 1868 and after disagreement with his teacher, he left, accompanying his father on concert tours and playing in the orchestras the latter conducted. In 1872 he returned to Lige to study with Rodolphe and Lon Massart, completing his training there with distinction in 1874. He continued his studies with Wienawski in Brussels and later, from 1876 to 1879, with Vieuxtemps in Paris. After leaving Paris, Ysaÿe took a position as leader of the Bilse orchestra in Berlin, where he continued until 1882. The period brought concert tours through Scandinavia and Russia with Anton Rubinstein, a collaboration that he found helped his own musical development. In 1883 he returned to Paris, associating there with leading composers, including Csar Franck and Camille Saint-Sans, and, from the younger generation, Ernest Chausson, Gabriel Faur, Vincent dIndy and Claude Debussy, exercising an important influence on French violin music of the time. Francks Violin Sonata was dedicated to him as a wedding present, and Ysaÿe gave the first performances in Brussels in 1886, and then in Paris. Other dedications included Chaussons Pome and Violin Concerto and Debussys String Quartet. Pire li houeu (Peter the Miner) was staged in Lige and then in Brussels. His health allowed him to attend the second of these, three weeks before his death on 12th May 1931. Ysaÿe had considerable influence on the development of violin-playing after Wienawski and Vieuxtemps, and there are many reminiscences of his playing and teaching. Yehudi Menuhin recalls a visit to Brussels to see Ysaÿe, the mentor of his own teacher, Louis Persinger, when he was, quite rightly, told to practise scales and arpeggios, advice that other great teachers have been heard to give. Joseph Szigeti recalled Ysaÿes fathers early prohibition of premature use of vibrato, finding here the reason for Ysaÿes own disciplined use of this technique, while Carl Flesch declared Ysaÿes influence the most vital and continuing. In 1937 the Eugne Ysaÿe International Competition was established, an event that later became the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium Competition. As a composer Ysaÿe lacked formal training but wrote a number of works for violin and orchestra, orchestral compositions and chamber music.
