In 1995, only eleven, she won the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition. The following year, in Lisbon, she took first prize at the Eurovision Competition for Young Instrumentalists and soon launched an international career that led to her breakthrough New York appearances in 2003 with conductor Lorin Maazel at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
In 2007 Julia Fischer was named “Artist of the Year” at the Classic FM Gramophone Awards. As one of the most sought-after musicians of her generation, she now performs regularly with all the leading orchestras and conductors of Europe and North America and at the most important festivals, including the BBC Proms. In 2009 she visited eleven European and ten North American cities as leader-soloist of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields’ 50th Anniversary Tour.
Her European concert schedule for the 2009–10 season includes tours with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and Yuri Temirkanov and the Netherland Philharmonic Orchestra and Yakov Kreizberg. She also performs Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin on a two-month tour in Europe. As artist-in-residence with the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich she appeared in a chamber music concert in December 2009 and will play Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto at three concerts with Michael Sanderling in Summer 2010.
During the 2007–08 season Julia Fischer, who has continued to play the piano throughout her career, made her professional piano debut at the Alte Oper Frankfurt performing Grieg’s Piano Concerto and Saint-Saëns’s Violin Concerto no. 3 on the same evening. This much fêted concert will be released on DVD by Decca in 2010.
An exclusive Decca recording artist since 2008, Julia Fischer’s first album with her new label – Bach concertos as both leader and soloist with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields – was released in January 2009 to exceptional critical acclaim (MIDEM Classical Award 2009 “Instrumentalist of the Year”). She has already won many prizes for her earlier recordings, including Germany’s coveted Echo Award in 2005 and 2007, the BBC Music Magazine Award and France’s prestigious Diapason d’or and Choc du Monde de la musique. Her second Decca recording, featuring Paganini’s 24 Caprices, is being released in 2010.
Julia Fischer, who regards teaching as a major component of her musical career, is a professor (Germany’s youngest) at the Hochschule für Musik in Frankfurt.
