Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Free but lonely" is the romantic life's motto of the violinist Joseph Joachim, who was sponsored by Mendelssohn and Schumann and through his friendship with Clara Schumann and Brahms matured into one of the most influential musicians of the 19th century. - "F - A - E", a series of notes derived from this motto, was also the title of a violin sonata, composed jointly for him in 1853 by Schumann, Brahms and Albert Dietrich. - "Free but lonely" is the title of a series of CDs presenting music by the composers close to Joseph Joachim, and by Joachim himself. This opens up a fascinating panorama of romantic music, born from the fruitful exchange of ideas between famous and little known composers whose works deserve to be discovered.
