JOHANNES WOLFF - VIOLINIST

Autographed postcard photograph of the Dutch violinist. London, January, 1909.

Wolff (1863-1931) became interested in the violin after his Father took him to as Wieniawski concert.  Initially he studied with Emmanuel Wirth in Rotterdam.  Further study in Dresden was sponsored by the Dutch King.  He then went to the Paris Conservatoire as a pupil of Joseph Massart, where he won a first after three years of study.  He  toured Europe extensively, especially spending time in Great Britain.  He also toured the United States with cellist Joseph Hollman.  Wolff was the dedicatee of a number of works, including Gabriel Fauré’s “Andante for Violin and Piano in B. flat major, op. 75”, Benjamin Godard’s “Violin Concerto #2”, Johan Halvorsen’s “Air Norvegien” and Camille Saint-Saën’s “Caprice Andalou”.  Wolff was also a great friend of Edvard Grieg and concertized with him in solo works for violin and piano and chamber music. Wolff was also painted by John Singer Sargent.
