Joseph Joachim (1831-1907) was arguably the greatest violinist of the nineteenth century. But Joachim was also a composer of virtuoso pieces, violin concertos, orchestral overtures and chamber music works. Uhde's book will be the standard work on the music of Joseph Joachim for many years to come.

Joseph Joachim (1831-1907), of Jewish-Hungarian descent, was arguably the greatest violinist of the nineteenth century. His performing career in Berlin transformed the aesthetics and interpretation of German music. But Joachim was also a composer of virtuoso pieces, violin concertos, orchestral overtures, and chamber music works, all written between 1849 and 1864 in one intense outpouring of creativity.
Katharina Uhde follows Joachim's compositional path through a changing cultural milieu. Joachim's compositions display intimate knowledge of the works of Mendelssohn, Wagner, Liszt, Schumann and Brahms, yet he was no mere imitator. Joachim's style, classically conceived yet seasoned with a preference for dark, melancholy soundscapes and, in the earlier years, ciphers and "psychological" programmaticism, emerges as the product of various personal and socio-cultural currents: his search for national, religious and cultural identity and a mature compositional style.
Joachim's music drew on a wealth of treasures accumulated in his process of "enculturation", which began with Mendelssohn in Leipzig, and his aesthetic evolved from a deeply subjective approach, not insignificantly inspired by his muse, Gisela von Arnim. Her circle - the von Arnim and Grimm families - became Joachim's cultural and literary haven. But unforeseen events also impacted his output, among them Schumann's death, the ascent of the "young eagle" and the 'War of the Romantics'. Joachim's music throws light onto a vibrant decade, colored by realism, naturalism, new visual technologies and emerging academic disciplines, including psychology.Uhde's book will be the standard work on the music of Joseph Joachim for many years to come.

KATHARINA UHDE is Assistant Professor for Violin and Musicology at Valparaiso University, IN.

Recenzijas

In the end, it seems that the conflicting binaries of nationality, of virtuoso performer vs. "priestly" performer and of performer-interpreter vs. composer remained unresolved within Joachim himself. This book goes a long way towards illuminating these tensions and marks an important step towards opening up the topic for discussion. STUDIA MUSICOLOGICA A study centred around Joachim's music and his life as a composer...uncovers relationships both external and regional, as well as personal influences...In her analysis, Uhde shows immense musical and, in particular, technical expertise by exploring the structural and harmonic depth of Joachim's compositions from a violinist's point of view. JOURNAL OF THE SOCIETY OF MUSICOLOGY IN IRELAND This book is the first full-length treatment in English devoted to Joachim as a composer . . . [ and a] sorely needed addition to the scholarly literature of the late Romantic period. Uhde does an exemplary job of presenting and analyzing the entirety of Joachim's oeuvre, and she does so with the rarest of sensibilities, namely that of a musicologist who is also a performing musician. She intersperses the work with numerous biographical details, and her examinations of Joachim's compositions include plenty of cultural and historical context. . . . [ A]n important work about a too-long neglected musician. CHOICE Gives an exhaustive analysis of Joachim's works, with research into Joachim's life at that point, German politics and philosophy and comparisons with other pieces that were influential to him.
