Jehin-Prume, Frantz [François]


(b Spa, 18 April 1839; d Montreal, 29 May 1899). Canadian violinist and composer of Belgian birth. He was a pupil of his maternal uncle, François Prume, of Hubert Léonard, de Bériot and Fétis at the Brussels Conservatory, and later may have received guidance from Vieuxtemps and Henryk Wieniawski. At the age of 16 he began to give concerts and soon became widely known in Europe. An appointment to the Mexican court took him to North America in 1863. He appeared in the USA and Canada in 1865 and married the Canadian singer Rosita del Vecchio (1848–81) the next year. Jehin-Prume continued to tour in North America and extensively in Europe, but Montreal became his permanent residence. The first internationally known virtuoso to settle in Canada, he promoted orchestral and chamber music as conductor and performer. He composed two violin concertos (1860, 1874) and an oratorio dedicated to Pope Leo XIII, and wrote transcriptions and cadenzas for the violin; only a few works, published in Belgium, Canada and France or preserved in manuscript at the National Library of Canada, survive.
