During World War II, valuable scores and books from various Berlin libraries were taken to Eastern Europe, including a pair of fantasies on Irish and Hungarian themes by the violinist and composer Joseph Joachim. These pieces remained unknown until 2016, when violinist Katharina Uhde rediscovered them. She performed the modern premiere in Baden-Baden, and this new recording with the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra is the first of these forgotten works.
