N. B.: The following partial listing of Joseph Joachim’s students is based upon a list given in Andreas Moser’s Joseph Joachim. A Biography, London: Philip Wellby, 1901, pp. 242-244 [M], as well as information given in Wilhelm Joseph von Wasielewski’s Die Violine und ihre Meister, Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1904 [W], and profiles from Musik und Gender im Internet. [MUGI]. Names marked [KJ] have been garnered from the program of Joachim’s “60-jährigen Künstler-Jubliäum,” Berlin, 22 April 1899, for which the orchestra strings were drawn “exclusively from current or former students of the honoree, as well as participants in his quartet classes.” Other names have been culled from diverse sources. The list is in the process of verification and elaboration, and is subject to recurring emendation. At this point, I do not 100% vouch for its accuracy.

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser, April 11, 1902: “… a very interesting concert… The solos were all chosen with taste, and were not made the vehicle for a vain-glorious display of technique. A Prelude and Fugue in G minor by Bach, Tartini’s celebrated “Devil’s trill” Sonata, and an Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso by Saint-Saens were the works in which Mr. Bauerkeller displayed his highly-cultivated style, and a breadth and purity of tone, such as might be looked for in a pupil of Joachim.”

Coryn, Corrinne (*1876 — †?) [KJ] Links: KJMUGI

“Corinne Coryn, violinist, played Bach’s A major sonata and the Joachim variations. She plays with great earnestness of purpose and with exceeding care, and has a neat technic and a pretty, smooth tone. She is a little lacking in temperament, and quite so in individuality of style, but there is plenty of time for improvement in these respects, Miss Coryn being apparently still very young, and there is considerable promise for higher attainments in the future.” [The Musical Courier, Vol. 54, No. 2 (January 9, 1907), p. 6.]

“Eine reife Künstlerin in Bezug auf Auffassung ist Fräulein Corinne Coryn; sie schöpfte den geistigen Gehalt des Brahmsschen Konzerts und der Bachschen Ciacona voll aus. Wenn ihr bei Brahms technisch manches, so namentlich die Oktaven, nicht gelang, so lag dies wohl mehr an ihrer Befangenheit, als an nicht gefestigter Technik; ihr prächtiger warmer Ton kam besonders im Adagio des D-moll-Konzerts von Vieuxtemps zu schönster Geltung. Wir dürfen noch viel von ihr erwarten.” [Die Musik, I Februarheft 1902, p. 833.]

Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser, January 19, 1874: “Intelligence has just reached us of the death of this young Dutch violinist, a pupil of Joachim and known from his earliest days at Amsterdam as one of the most promising artistes in Europe. On his debut in London at the Musical Union, in 1870, he at once created a favourable impression, evincing a rare degree of musical intelligence and considerable executive power. During his visit to London he was the guest of Professor Ella, the director of the Musical Union, and won the esteem of many of our local professors and amateurs. After a lingering illness in Italy, he died last week, at the Hague, of consumption, at the age of 21.”

Edinburgh Evening News, March 16, 1887: “A NEW MUSICAL GENIUS. A great deal of curiosity has been recently expressed in musical circles concerning the new and phenomenal fiddle player, the great merit of whom was instantly recognized not long since by the Prince of Wales… The other night… Mr. Theodore Werner, the new violinist, played at the Lyric Club before a very representative and brilliant assembly  of prominent artistic personages, and (according to a London correspondent) he created a remarkable and profound sensation. He is a pupil of Joachim, and his bowing is worthy of the great master himself; the quality of tone he produces is very fine indeed, and as a rule more rich than that of Sarasate; while his fingering is simply perfect in finish, and absolutely faultless in rapidity and determination. Mr Werner is altogether a very marvelous musician.
