Otto Joachim receives an homage

German-born Canadian composer Otto Joachim, received a special homage during the gala of the Prix Opus in Montreal\s Salle Claude-Champagne. 

Joachim, also a violinist, founded the Montreal String Quartet and the Montreal "Ensemble de Musique Ancienne" (an early music group). During the evening, his son, virtuoso guitarist Davis Joachim, performed one of his father's pieces. 

Joachim, who is 97 years old, was in attendance. Due his advanced age, they had to give his award at his seat. 

Oh! and by the way, Joachim has written a saxophone quartet (there had to be a sax connection). Entitled Interlude, it is a brief little piece, written in 1960. The original score is available at the Canadian Music Center.
