Waldemar Meyer (Berlin, 1853-1940) was a German violinist and composer. He studied with Joseph Joachim in Berlin (meeting him the first time in 1869) and became the first violinist at the ‘Kaiserlicher Hof zu Berlin’. In 1882, he went to Paris and England for seven years and received the ,King George' Stradivari as a gift in 1889. In this year he returned to Berlin and founded his string quartet and a chamber music ensemble. He gave first performances of pieces by younger composers of his time such as Bruch, Glazunov, Grieg, and Dvorak.
