Julia FischerAfter touring the continent with the New York Philharmonic, Julia Fischer arrived in England to play the Beethoven Violin Concerto with David Zinman and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Reviewing the concert for the Times, Geoff Brown commented that “this would have been remarkable playing to achieve at any age.” Barry Millington of the Evening Standard, however, wrote in his review that he thought Fischer’s performance ultimately lacked humanity, and only provided evidence “of a more complete artist still to be revealed.”

Fischer has also been busy releasing CD’s, and David Patrick Stearns of the Philadelphia Inquirer reviews both the Tchaikovsky and Brahms releases. Her Tchaikovsky he calls “notable for its feats of subtlety”, while the Brahms “borders on being a signature piece for Fischer.” Geoff Brown reviewing the Brahms CD for the Times, notes that Fischer has “long soared beyond being labelled ‘promising'”, and she eases herself into the principal theme of the first movement “with the sweetest of sighs.”
