Julia Fischer

Violin

German violinist Julia Fischer is recognized worldwide for possessing a talent of uncommon ability. Her “pure and fine-spun tone, blessed with seemingly infinite shadings” (The Chicago Tribune) combined with rare “technical brilliance” (The Guardian) make her one of the most-sought after soloist before the public today.

In the 2017-18 season Julia Fischer is Artist-in-Residence with the Wiener Symphoniker. Apart from a chamber music program with principals from the orchestra, joint concerts with the orchestra and Chief Conductor Philippe Jordan at Vienna’s Konzerthaus and Musikverein feature performances of the Mendelssohn and Schumann violin concerti respectively as well as the Brahms concerto under the baton of Lahav Shani in Ms. Fischer’s hometown Munich. Further orchestral concerts in the season will reunite her with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (Fabio Luisi), St. Petersburg Philharmonic in Paris (Brahms and Tchaikovsky violin concerti with Yuri Temirkanov), London Philharmonic Orchestra (Vladimir Jurowski), SWR Symphonieorchester (Thomas Søndergård), Philharmonia Orchestra (Esa-Pekka Salonen), Orchestra National de France (Riccardo Muti), Dresden Philharmonie (Michael Sanderling) and Tonhalle-Orchestra Zürich (Herbert Blomstedt). On tour with the Bayerische Staatsorchester and its General Music Director Kirill Petrenko, Julia Fischer performs the Brahms Double Concerto with Daniel Müller-Schott in Munich, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and New York’s Carnegie Hall in spring 2018. In recital with pianist Yulianna Avdeeva, Julia Fischer tours Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Poland and the Czech Republic. Performances with the Julia Fischer Quartet take the ensemble amongst others to Leipzig, London, Luxembourg, Munich and Zurich.
