First chance in 100 years to hear Joseph Joachim’s Irish Fantasymain
Katharina Uhde and her father Michael Uhde have just posted the first modern performance of a lost score by the legendary violinist Joseph Joachim, who died in 1907.
The manuscript of this charming piece was found by Katharina in a Polish archive.
Robert Eschbach, the Joachim expert, thinks she may be the first since Joachim to play it.
The Fantasy makes its first appearance on social media via Slipped Disc.
And it’s as much Scottish as it is Irish.
