During the period in which he was concert master in Weimar the violinist, conductor and composer Joseph Joachim (1831–1907) belonged to Franz Liszt's artistic circle. Later he became the director of the newly founded Musikhochschule in Berlin. Joachim, who is considered to be one of the most important chamber musicians of the late 19th century, was a member of the piano trio Liszt-Joachim-Coßmann which attained a legendary reputation in the short time of its existence.
