JULIA FISCHER – BIOGRAPHY

Julia Fischer was born in Munich in 1983 and began learning the piano from her mother at the age of three.

As anyone who has heard Julia Fischer's previous PentaTone release, of Russian concertos, or has heard her live will know, this young German violinist is among the finest of the current generation.
To record Bach's solo violin music at the age of 21 might be thought premature, a point Fischer addresses in her notes. Her confidence is not misplaced. Yehudi Menuhin did so memorably at a similar age, and Fischer was clearly ready, too. Not only is she fully at the top of her game technically but, more importantly, there is a clear sense that these works form part of her daily musical diet - in much the same way that the cello suites did for Pablo Casals.
Having now played these recordings many times and with ever-increasing pleasure, it seems important to give the potential purchaser an impression of what are the significant features which make the set so special. First, the sound is quite excellent in the sympathetic acoustic of Amsterdam's baroque Doopsgezinde Singelkerk - a matter of no small importance when contemplating two-and-a-half hours of unaccompanied violin music. Then, the consistently beautiful tone Fischer draws from her 1750 Guadagnini is similarly grateful on the ear; and simply as pure sound her rendering of the concluding Allegro of the A minor Sonata offers some of the most resonantly spectacular solo violin-playing one has any right to hear. Its sheer physical impact is consistently astonishing.
However, what makes this set one to place alongside Arthur Grumiaux and Menuhin's first versions is Fischer's musical penetration. Despite her youth, her playing has the patience and spiritual maturity of one who has lived much longer.

Format: Audio CD
This is quite phenomenal. The young German violinist, Julia Fischer, has immaculate technique and fabulous tone, here put at the service of some of the most compelling and profound music composed for this or, indeed, any other instrument. There isn't an ugly or out of tune note to be found here in well over 2 hours of music-making, yet at the same time there is no self-conscious attempt at beautification nor does Fischer underplay the sense of struggle and heroic effort inherent in the music, not least in a spacious and eloquent account of the great Chaconne of the D minor Partita. On the contrary, her playing is full of life and character, and this is far from the sort of anodyne or pedagogic Bach-playing that you sometimes encounter from the period performance lobby. In short, this is a version of these endlessly fascinating works that is fit to stand alongside some of the finest accounts from the past (Grumiaux, Perlman et al), with the added advantage of being recorded in some of the most stunningly natural violin sound I have heard, even in standard stereo playback mode. Nothing is allowed to detract from the sheer unalloyed pleasure of the sound of bow on strings, so much so that one might even imagine Julia Fischer to be present in the room with you (not, in any way, an unpleasant thought). An essential purchase for anyone who loves these works or the art of violin playing, and a clear first choice among 21st century recordings.

I never thought this young violinist could play Bach in such a matured way. My version at home was Milstein, Szegeti, Kremer (not very good), and Grumiaux. But Julia Fischer's Bach has won so much praise and I just wonder why. Therefore I bought this pricy double SACD (no ordinary CD available).
I was surprised. It doesn't sound like she is young at all. According to Fisher, she played Bach every day. And she has been studying Bach since she was a little girl. No wonder she has attended to the details of it. The speed she took was relatively slow, especially for the Preludes and Sarabande. Her technique was impeccable, but it all sounded so natural. I once listened to Heifitz and I didn't quite like it. It sounded not like Bach. Fisher surely captured the elegance and warmth of one of Bach's most intelligent and intellectual works.
If you like Bach's Unaccompanied Sonata and Partita for Solo Violin, buy this. You won't regret. The recording quality was superb, too!

I first encountered the Gavotte/Rondeau from Partita No.3 as incidental music, setting a baroque tone in Carl Sagan’s TV series “Cosmos” in the early 80’s (I just realised that this was before Juila Fischer was born-yikes!). If any piece of music introduced me to Bach then this is it. For those who have never encountered this solo violin music you don’t know how expressive and beautiful it is. It has to be a strong contender for the finest violin music ever written, certainly amongst the finest solo instrument music of all time.
My first encounter with Julia Fischer was watching the TV broadcast on the BBC some years ago of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, now available on DVD and reviewed by me. She is brilliant, gifted and insightful, particularly of the baroque in my opinion.
Although I owned a perfectly good analogue transfer recording (Grumiaux on Philips), I saw this new SACD on amazon and thought I’d give it ago. I’ve no regrets at all. Ms Fisher’s playing is superb and I entirely agree with the other reviewers here. She obviously loves the music intensely and, despite her youth, brings an understanding to it that has come from years of study (liner notes mention she’s played this composer’s work since she was nine).
I’m relatively new to SACD ownership and I’m finding it difficult sometimes to exactly understand what I’ll get off a disc. It is not always clear whether an SACD is multichannel for instance (some are only stereo, selling on the enhanced fidelity of the format). Well this one is multi-channel (surround-sound), and they’ve made a superb job of it.
