Joseph Joachim Centenary

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A chamber concert to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Joseph Joachim, the famous Jewish violinist, (who afterwards left Judaism, however) will be given on Monday, June 29th., in the Old Hall, Lincoln’s Inn, by permission of the Benchers, being the first concert to be held in the Old Hall. The artists who will take part are Adila Fachri (violin), Jelly d’Aranyi (violin), Gabrielle Joachim (singer), and Donald Francis Tovey (piano). The first two are grandnieces and the third a granddaughter of Joachim, and Professor Tovey was closely associated with him for many years.

It is due to Joachim’s example and the influence of his interpretation that most of the great violin works and much of the chamber music of the classical school became familiar to the general public.
