Career[ edit ] Pablo Sarasate was born in Pamplona , Navarre , the son of an artillery bandmaster. Apparently, after seeing his father struggle with a passage for a long time, he picked up the violin and played it perfectly. He began studying the violin with his father at the age of five and later took lessons from a local teacher.
Later, as his abilities developed, he was sent to study under Jean-Delphin Alard at the Paris Conservatoire at the age of twelve. There was not another Spanish violinist to achieve this until Manuel Quiroga did so in ; Quiroga was frequently compared to Sarasate throughout his career.
Sarasate, who had been publicly performing since childhood, made his Paris debut as a concert violinist in , and played in London the following year. Over the course of his career, he toured many parts of the world, performing in Europe , North America , and South America.
His artistic pre-eminence was due principally to the purity of his tone, which was free from any tendency towards the sentimental or rhapsodic, and to that impressive facility of execution that made him a virtuoso. Perhaps the best known of his works is Zigeunerweisen , a work for violin and orchestra. At Brussels , he met Berthe Marx , who traveled with him as soloist and accompanist on his tours through Europe, Mexico, and the US; playing in about concerts.
The violin now bears his name as the Sarasate Stradivarius in his memory. Also inspired by Sarasate is William H. John H. Watson attend a concert by Sarasate. A recording of the air of the same title by Sarasate, and his that can be heard on the recording, are one of the themes of the movie.
