Adolf Busch (8 August 1891 – 9 June 1952) was a German violinist and composer. Born in Siegen. He studied at the Cologne Conservatory with Willy Hess and Bram Eldering.
After he made his debut as a soloist in 1912, he took the position of head of department at Berlin Royal Academy of Musical Performing Arts in 1917. In 1919 he founded the Busch Quartet.
In 1922 he got acquainted with Rudolf Serkin, but he sought asylum in Switzerland in 1935 following Rudolf Serkin who was exiled by the Nazis. In 1939 he went over to the USA with his family and the members of Busch Quartet. (Wikipedia)
He left a lot of phonograph records (EP records, LP records) leaving marks on history of musical performance for works of Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Schubert
and so on with his deep reflective interpretation. Fritz Busch, the well-known conductor and Hermann Busch, the cellist in Busch Quartet were his younger brothers.
