Ruprecht Kamlah


Dr. Ruprecht Kamlah, born Feb. 13th, 1941 in Göttingen, is a direct descendant of Joseph Joachim’s cousin Fanny Wittgenstein. As a boy he knew Joachim’s eldest son Johannes and his wife “Tante Jo”.  Currently a retired lawyer (Notar a.D.) living in Erlangen, Bavaria, he has done research on Joseph Joachim’s violins. His article on Joachim’s Guarneri violins was published in Wiener Geschichtsblätter 2013 No. 1. Another article, “Der Geigensammler Johann Knoop und das vergebliche Verlangen Joseph Joachims nach der Stradivari ‘Alard'” is in preparation.
