Hungarian composer and violinist Ede Reményi (Eduard Hoffmann) made his début in Pest in 1846 but was then exiled following his involvement with the uprising against Austria. Reményi toured Germany with Brahms, who introduced him to Liszt. The elder Hungarian became his friend and mentor, composing his Epithalam for Reményi's wedding. Appearing throughout Europe as a virtuoso, Reményi was finally allowed back into Hungary in 1860, but continued to tour throughout his life. He died at age 70 while giving a concert in San Francisco.
