Info for Höckh: Violin Sonatas



Carl Höckh is undoubtedly an exceptional figure. Previous research and scientific inquiries do not explain many facts from his life, and the authenticity of some of his works is questioned. During the research, even the violinist’s portrait has remained undiscovered – perhaps it was never created. For the needs of this publication, several important factual data have been collected, allowing us to shine some light on Höckh’s life and historical context – his times, fortunes and work. This information still seems to be insufficient, especially with regard to how much the violinist contributed to the development of German and international violin playing. Douglas A. Lee puts the composer in line with Johann Georg Pisendel, Franz Benda and Leopold Mozart, thus recognising Höckh as one of the founders of the violin school in the German-speaking area.

This is, of course, the opinion of a competent contemporary researcher, but it is worth referring to several historical facts and sources that stand behind it.
