Franz von Vecsey (Vecsey Ferenc) (1893 - 1935) was a Hungarian violinist and composer. He was born in Budapest and began his violin studies with his father, Lajos Vecsey, and at the age of eight he entered the studio of Jeno Hubay. Two years later, aged ten, he played for Joseph Joachim in Berlin and subsequently became known as a stellar child prodigy virtuoso. He became one of the pre-eminent violinists in Europe in the 1910s and '20s, at one point touring with Bela Bartok as his piano accompanist.
