Raff was born in Lachen in Switzerland. Joachim was largely self-taught in music, studying the subject while working as a schoolmaster in Schmerikon , Schwyz and Rapperswil.

In , Raff walked to Basel to hear Franz Liszt play the piano. During this time he helped Liszt in the orchestration of several of his works, claiming to have had a major part in orchestrating the symphonic poem Tasso. From he was the first Director of, and a teacher at, the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt. There he employed Clara Schumann and a number of other eminent musicians as teachers, and established a class specifically for female composers.

This was at a time when women composers were not taken very seriously. Raff was very prolific, and by the end of his life was one of the best known German composers, though his work is largely forgotten today.

Only one piece, a cavatina for violin and piano, is performed with any regularity today, sometimes as an encore. He drew influence from a variety of sources - his eleven symphonies , for example, combine the Classical symphonic form, with the Romantic penchant for program music and contrapuntal orchestral writing which harks back to the Baroque.

Most of these symphonies carry descriptive titles including In the Forest No. His last four symphonies make up a quartet of works based on the four seasons. A complete cycle of all his symphonies and many other orchestral works was recorded in the early s by the Bamberg Symphony under Hans Stadlmair.

Raff's Symphony No. Arturo Toscanini conducted some performances of the symphony in The Lenore symphony No. The world premiere recording of Lenore was made during May 27—29, , by the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Bernard Herrmann , who championed Raff's orchestral music.

For example, Raff's Symphony No. Raff also composed in most other genres, including concertos , opera , chamber music and works for solo piano. His chamber works include five violin sonatas , a cello sonata , a piano quintet , two piano quartets , a string sextet and four piano trios.

Many of these works are now commercially recorded. He also wrote numerous suites, some for smaller groups there are suites for piano solo and suites for string quartet , some for orchestra and one each for piano and orchestra and violin and orchestra.
