A violinist who builds a program around the legacy of the 19th century virtuoso Joseph Joachim can hardly be accused of pandering to sell tickets. Consider the headline on a 2007 article in The New York Times commemorating the 100th anniversary of Joachim’s death: Another Ovation for Joachim (Who?).
Yet aside from the Italian virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, it’s difficult to think of a violinist who has exerted more influence than Joachim on the history of the instrument or on music in general.
As the confidante of some of the greatest names in 19th century music, Joachim inspired, collaborated on and made famous some of the most significant works of the violin repertoire. The British violinist Daniel Hope will give a recital Tuesday at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale devoted to exploring the music we owe to a man whose name is unfamiliar to the average concertgoer.
