József Bloch was a violin virtuoso and composer, born in Budapest in 1862 (he is not to be confused with Ernest Bloch – the famous American composer by the same last name). There is very little documented about him, but his compositions include short pieces for violin, technique exercises for the violin, and two suites for orchestra. At just sixteen years of age, Bloch was appointed as an assistant teacher at the National Conservatory before moving to the Paris Conservatory. He returned to his home of Budapest later in life and became the second violinist of the Budapest Quartet (also known as the Hubay-Popper String Quartet). Legendary cellist David Popper was a founding member of this chamber group. The Bloch Andante Religioso is a beautiful but simple piece that works very well for a cello quartet ensemble.
