JOSEPH JOACHIM (1831 - 1907)
Among the great violinists and teachers of his time, Joseph Joachim studied in Vienna, worked as a boy with Mendelssohn in Leipzig, served as violinist to the King of Hanover, and eventually moved to Berlin. He met Brahms in 1853 and, apart from one breach, remained a friend for many years, advising him on orchestration and on writing for strings.
Much of Joachim’s writing was for the violin, including concertos, chamber music, cadenzas and a number of important editions, as well as an arrangement of the Hungarian Dances of Brahms for violin and piano.
