Episode 40 - Who Was Sarasate?

"Sarasate plays at St. James's Hall this afternoon" [REDH] 

We know Sherlock Holmes enjoyed music. From his own violin playing to a few mentions of concerts he attended, he often escaped from the woes of the world and the problems he was trying to solve through music.

In "The Adventure of the Red Headed League," he says "Sarasate plays at St. James's Hall this afternoon," and he and Watson make their way to the concert, where Holmes clearly enjoyed himself, "wrapped in the most perfect happiness, gently waving his long, thin fingers in time to the music."

But what do we know about Sarasate? Who was this performer who was able to distract Holmes for a few hours?
