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.Read more ›
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.
