Milan Lusk was born 1893 in Illinois (USA). His father was a lawyer and his mother, Marie Koupal-Lusk, a famous painter. Milan Lusk received his first lessons in Chicago under Joseph H. Capek. He later went to Pisek (Bohemia) to study with Otakar Sevcik. After his studies he toured as a violin soloist worldwide and performed in the presence of royalties like Queen Marie of Romania, Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini or the Czecho-Slovakian president Tomas Masaryk. He made a few recordings that still exist. Milan Lusk died during a tour on 8 September 1932 in Prague of heart disease after an operation for a gastric ailment.
The "Dream song (Idylle) for violin and piano" is dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Dubbs. It was published by Continental amd should also exist in an orchestral version, but I have no information if it still exists.
