Music@Menlo Concert Program IV: In Joachim's Orbit

The sheer brilliance of Mendelssohn’s musical achievements would inspire an emerging generation of Romantics. Robert Schumann considered him “the first musician of the day…He plays with everything…with such ease, delicacy, and art, with such mastery throughout.” An equal mastery would bless Schumann’s disciple Johannes Brahms, whose catalogue of chamber music stands without peer in their generation. A catalyst to the artistic triumphs of these and other composers, the violinist Joseph Joachim equally towers as one of German Romanticism’s most consequential figures. A protégé of Mendelssohn’s, Joachim would come to personify the German school of violin playing and served as muse to Schumann and Brahms in the creation of their greatest works for violin. Concert Program IV surrounds Joachim with signature works by these composers, culminating in Brahms’s poetic Horn Trio.
