2017-18 marks the seventh season of Julia Fischer appearing with her own quartet. The Julia Fischer Quartet unites Ms. Fischer with three renowned musicians, each soloists in their own right: violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky, violinist Nils Mönkemeyer and cellist Benjamin Nyffenegger. These four artists have performed chamber music jointly in different configurations for multiple years. The idea to establish a string quartet was born in 2010, when all four musicians acquired a broad repertoire during Julia Fischer’s festival at Lake Starnberg. Personalities met who saw eye to eye and whose contributions were on an equal footing as much as they were of utmost responsiveness to the other musicians’ ideas. This season the Julia Fischer Quartet performs at Wigmore Hall, Tonhalle Zürich, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Prinzregententheater Munich and Gewandhaus Leipzig amongst others.
