Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst (1814- 1865) was a Moravian violinist and composer. He played in public when he was nine, and in October 1825 entered the Vienna Conservatory, where he studied the violin with Joseph Boehm and composition with Seyfried. Paganini's appearance in Vienna in 1828 made a profound impression on him, and in 1829 he began following Paganini on tour, playing several of his unpublished works by ear with a degree of fidelity that amazed the composer. After a d?but in Paris (1831) he withdrew from concert life for three years of further study. In 1837 he and Paganini appeared together in Marseilles, after which Ernst wrote in a letter, ‘The consensus of opinion was that I play with more sentiment, while he conquers more difficulties’. Travels through Europe and Russia followed, bringing him acclaim as one of the outstanding violinists of his time. His most enduring success came in London, where he was first heard on 18 July 1843 in the Hanover Square Rooms; the Musical World described him as the most accomplished living violinist (his immediate rivals were Sivori and Vieuxtemps). He became a regular visitor to London and settled there in 1855. In 1859 he appeared as leader of the Beethoven Society string quartet with Joachim, Wieniawski and Piatti. During his last years illness prevented him from giving performances in public.

Among Paganini's successors, Ernst alone reached (and occasionally even surpassed) his technical wizardry. Contemporary critics stressed his soulful, touching cantilena: Berlioz called him a great musician as well as a great violinist. Joachim declared that ‘Ernst was the greatest violinist I have ever heard; he towered above all others’, and Mendelssohn showed his admiration by accompanying him on several occasions. As a composer Ernst had true Romantic ?lan, exemplified in his Concerto path?tique op.23 or the famous El?gie op.10; his compositions represent the pinnacle of violin technique, and such works for unaccompanied violin as the Six Polyphonic Studies and the arrangement of Schubert's Erlk?nig show his imagination and ingenuity.
