Overview

Voted “Best Newcomer” by BBC Music Magazine in 2006 and acclaimed as “Artist of the Year” in the prestigious Classic FM Gramophone Awards only a year later, 25-year-old Julia Fischer is already being hailed as one of the truly great violinists of the 21st century.

Julia burst upon the international music scene at the 1995 Yehudi Menuhin Competition by taking first prize as well as a special prize for “Best Bach Solo Work.” It is only natural then that her Decca debut disc should feature Bach—this time the solo and double concertos. Julia is joined by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields in these strikingly sophisticated and technically brilliant performances. From the Label

Editorial Reviews
