In 2016, Uhde rediscovered the two early fantasies, composed in the 1850s. “Fantasies on Hungarian and Irish [Scottish] Themes” was Joachim's first virtuoso music for the violin with orchestral accompaniment. Bärenreiter published Fantasy on Hungarian Themes (1850), Fantasy on Irish [Scottish] Themes (1852) for Violin and Orchestra, edited by Uhde, in 2018. This CD is the first recording of these early works by the violin virtuoso.

Katharina Uhde, Associate Professor of Music at Valparaiso University, is an internationally acclaimed violinist and musicologist. She is the author of The Music of Joseph Joachim (Boydell & Brewer, 2018).
