Julia Fischer

Born to German-Slovak parents, Julia Fischer began violin lessons aged three, though she really wanted to be a pianist like her mother. She was persuaded to pursue the violin by her mother’s desire for a variety of instruments in the household. This slightly serendipitous start to learning the violin is not reflected in her meteoric progress. At six Fisher began lessons at the Leopold Mozart Conservatory in Augsburg and three years later became a pupil of Ana Chumachenco at the Munich Academy. At eleven she won the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition.

In 2008 she made her professional piano début at the Alte Oper, Frankfurt, performing Grieg’s Piano Concerto with the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie conducted by Matthias Pintscher. In the same concert she also performed Saint-Saëns’s Violin Concerto No. 3! Fischer became artist in residence of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra in 2006 (under Yakov Kreizberg, who had directed her first disc for PentaTone in 2004—Russian violin concertos with the Russian National Orchestra—which was awarded the ECHO Klassik prize). In 2006 she recorded the Tchaikovsky Concerto with the same performers, the year in which she was voted Best Newcomer by BBC Music Magazine for her disc of Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin.
