Julia Fischer first met the Russian composer Andrey Rubtsov in Moscow in 2001. 15 years later, he dedicated a violin concerto to her, which she premiered together with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. On 18 and 19 July, Julia Fischer will perform this work with the Deutsche Streicherphilharmonie under Michael Sanderling at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.Read More
Julia Fischer will play for the first time the new violin by violin maker Philipp Augustin with the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto at her concerts with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and Herbert Blomstedt end of June. Like her first violin by Augustin (2011), she will play it alternately with her Guadagnini violin from 1742. Her earlier Augustin violin is now being played by her student Louis Vandory, who will actually perform together with her and Kammerakademie Potsdam at the Berlin Philharmonie in the coming season.
Exclusively for club members, Philipp Augustin talks about Julia Fischer's new instrument.Read More
