12 Elsewhere, Uhde discusses Joachim's relationship with his Hungarian identity, characterizing him as ‘out of touch with his native land’, one who ‘hardly spoke Hungarian’, but felt ‘nostalgia’ and ‘reverence for his lost roots’; see Uhde,‘Rediscovering’, 97–8.

Elsewhere, Uhde identifies hints of ‘The Last Rose of Summer’ (partial and possibly coincidental) and finds that an additional recurring melody, Andantino in B minor, recalls music from the prologue of Donizetti's opera Lucrezia Borgia (1833); see Uhde, The Music of Joseph Joachim, 31 and 33; see also 28–9.
