Joseph Joachim Raff(1822-1882)

Joachim Raff was largely self-taught in music, studying the subject while working as a schoolmaster. He sent some of his piano compositions to Felix Mendelssohn who recommended them to Breitkopf & Härtel for publication. They were published in 1844 and received a favourable review in Robert Schumann's journal, the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, which prompted Raff to go to Zürich and take up composition full time. After a period in Stuttgart where he became friends with the conductor Hans von Bülow, he worked as Liszt's assistant at Weimar from 1850 to 1853. Despite Raff being one of the most widely performed and respected composers of his day the sole composition to have survived is the Cavatina movement of his Opus 85. The Cavatina is the third of a set of brief, compactly written duos for violin and piano that Raff composed under the collective title Six Morceaux.
