BERKOVITS, LAJOS:

Hungarian violinist; born at Budapest in 1874. Here he passed through the schools and finished his musical education. He was graduated from the National Academy of Music, where his teachers were Jeno Hubay and David Popper. In 1895 he went to Paris, where he entered the celebrated Lamoureux orchestra as first violinist, in which capacity he made a tour through England. As a soloist his appearances were frequent and invariably successful. In 1896 he received an engagement in the royal orchestra of the opera at Budapest, and he is still a member of that body as well as of the well-known Grünfeld quartet.
