James Bellak


James Bellak (1813, Prague, Austria Bohemia – 1 September 1891, Atlantic City, N.J. (?)) was an Austrian composer and pianist.

Little is known about the life of James Bellak. He apparently had moved to Philadelphia by 1854 when he opened a piano store there. He was a remarkably prolific composer of sentimental songs and piano pieces. The popularity of his music coincided with the increasing presence of the piano in American homes in the 1860s.
