This disc, recorded in 2012, offers the same coupling as that made some years earlier by Tasmin Little. Otherwise this is a relatively rare coupling but one that is very attractive.

The Dvorak concerto has always been second choice in the trilogy of Dvorák's concertos with the cello concerto being a firm favourite and with the piano concerto being the least popular. The two string concertos benefit considerably by Dvorak's own expertise as an experienced string player. The violin concerto was written at a time when the composer was under the considerable influence of Brahms whom he greatly admired. He had yet to fully formulate his own distinctive style of composition incorporating the Slavonic dance and folk elements that are so integral to his later works. Nevertheless the early signs are still there and can easily be heard in the final movement especially but also in the pointed rhythms of the first movement. As a reference point in these respects, the early 1960's recording by Josef Suk with the Czech P.O. conducted by Karel Ancerl, is by far the most obviously Slavonic in feel. However, that recording even in its new 24 bit remastering, cannot begin to compare with this latest offering by Julia Fischer.

Julia Fischer, surprisingly for someone with a Czechoslovakian mother, offers a noticeably less Slavonic inflected reading than Isabelle Faust for instance on her recent alternative recording. This may be partly to do with David Zinman's leadership of the orchestra where the Slavonic rhythms, so pointed under Ancerl's conducting with Suk, are smoothed out quite markedly. This less Slavonic inflected approach is also true when comparing the disc with those by both Sarah Chang and Isabelle Faust.

Julia Fischer is one of the foremost violonists of her generation. Her performances in both the Brahms and Tchaikowsky concertos were stunning. This disc doesn't fall short of my expectations as well. Two beautiful and romantic concertos played impeccably, very well recorded. What more would anyone want?
Highly recommended.

Five BRILLIANT Stars! The award-winning violin and piano virtuoso Julia Fischer's latest Decca release is a wonderful combination of Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Opus 26 and Antonín Dvořák's Violin Concerto in A minor, Opus 53 (B 108). With excellent support from the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra under the baton of maestro David Zinman, the violinist and orchestra are in superb form producing exceptional versions of this well-matched program of Romantic violin concerto works, both of whom were influenced by the input of violin virtuoso/composer Joseph Joachim. Fischer's inspired, fiery bow work produces a lyrical performance of Dvořák's awesome but under-appreciated 1883 concerto. This should elevate the popularity of that work immensely among violinists and classical fans, especially the spirited Allegro ma non troppo movement, with it's hauntingly beautiful themes, which proceeds seamlessly into the grand second movement. The more popular Bruch concerto is played with sheer brilliance by Fischer and the orchestra, especially the soaring Finale (allegro energico) movement, with its swirling 'Hungarian style' influences. This is a marvelous addition to the Julia Fischer discography linking the brilliance of these two celebrated Romantic composers and is further evidence of her place among the finest classical violinists. Bravo, Julia, David, and the ZTO! My Highest Recommendation. (Reviewed in MP3 format. 6 tracks: Time: 56:20.)

I have some recordings by Julia Fischer and all are to my great satisfaction.
This one, now perfectly supported by David Zinman and the Zürich Tonhalle, is again a fine disc with 2 of the great violin concerto's in the repertoire.
Who would have any more doubts of Fischer's art, try out also her Tchaikovsky violin concerto disc on Decca, the company who keeps on and on issuing very fine sounding records with great artists.

I had never had a CD with Dvorak's violin concerto on it,This was brilliant,almost brought tears to my eyes.I do have a CD of Bruch's violin concerto but did not mind a second recording.It surpassed my old one and Julia played the second movement with true feeling,very moving.She is a very talented young lady and I look forward to hearing more music from her. This CD is an excellent addition to my collection.
