Emile Sauret (1852 – 1920). No one seems to sure just where Emile Sauret learned to play the violin – differing accounts list Beriot, Vieuxtemps, and Wieniawski as possible teachers – but everyone agrees that his instructors did a fine job. Sauret was already a renowned performer at the age of seven, and the time he spent in advanced study only made him more so. His concert tours brought him worldwide acclaim (especially in the United States), and in between trips he taught at conservatories in Berlin, London, and Stockholm. His compositions – mainly violin works – grew out of his fondness for post-Romantic and Modernist music.
