Emmerich Kálmán (Siófok, October 24, 1882 - Paris, October 30, 1953), also known as Imre Kálmán, was a Hungarian composer of operettas.

“This is just to say THANK YOU, Saturday was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone I have met this week. We loved the music and the way you presented it. The way you used the stage was one of the things that most impressed people. The energy you put into costume and prop changes kept everyone’s attention, and the singing and accompaniment were superb.” 

Born in Prague, Fučík remains perhaps the most famous of the Czech light music composers. He studied the violin and the bassoon at the conservatory and composition under Antonin DvoÅ™ák. He played in Prague orchestras and moved to Croatia where he also acted as both conductor of the theatre orchestra in Zagreb and a chorus master in Sisak. During this period he wrote chamber music. Like many others, he moved to the military, playing in an Austrian regimental band under Josef Franz Wagner, and later in Vienna under Karl Komzák. Soon he became a bandmaster himself, a position he held for many years where amongst other places he was based in Sarajevo and Budapest. In the last decade or so of the 19th century Fučík composed many of his best works. He returned to Bohemia in 1909 when he reached the peak of his military career and gave huge concerts in Prague and Berlin. He finally moved to Berlin to open a music publishing business, Tempo Verlag , but unfortunately he died early following the hardship of the First World War . He composed not only many excellent marches such as Entry of the Gladiators and Florentiner , but magnificent overtures like Marinarella and Miramare and some exceptional waltzes. He even wrote one operetta and a requiem! In particular his waltzes Winter Storms , Traumideale , and Ballerinas remain classics with his very distinctive use of Czech musical idioms. His works total some 400 and his scores been recently transferred into national ownership in Prague.

Despite his Jewish origins he was one of Adolf Hitler 's favorite composers. After the Anschluss , he rejected Hitler's offer to become an ' honorary Aryan ' and was forced to move first to Paris, then to the United States, settling in California in 1940. [2] Following his emigration, performances of his works were prohibited in Nazi Germany. He emigrated back to Vienna from New York in 1949 before moving in 1951 to Paris, where he died.
