Julia Fischer

Julia Fischer is one of the world’s leading violin soloists and expresses her artistic diversity not only as a violinist, but also as a pianist, chamber musician and professor.

At the age of three, the daughter of German-Slovak parents, born in Munich in 1983, received her first lessons on the violin and shortly afterwards her first piano lessons from her mother Viera Fischer. At the age of nine, the renowned professor for violin, Ana Chumachenco, accepted her as a student at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich. In 2011, the university appointed Fischer as a professor. In 2017, Fischer founded the JF CLUB, her own music platform, on which all her new recordings can be heard exclusively and where she gives insights into her work, thus pursuing a new path in the classical world.

Fischer started the 2018-19 season with a string trio tour across Europe, for the first time together with Nils Mönkemeyer and Daniel Müller-Schott, who both have been her chamber music partners for several years. Concert tours will lead her to Asia twice: in March 2019, she will be playing concerts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski in Seoul, Taipei, Beijing and Shanghai. In July 2019, she will guest in Japan and Korea, together with the Dresden Philharmonic and Principal Conductor Michael Sanderling. Together with the Academy of St. Martins in the Fields and violinist Augustin Hadelich, she will be touring across Germany in May 2019.

Since the beginning of her career, Fischer has released numerous CD and DVD recordings, which were all critically acclaimed and decorated with many awards. Today, Fischer releases all her new recordings on her music platform JF CLUB, including Eugène Ysaye’s six solo sonatas and the associated works, César Franck’s sonata in A-Major, as well as Karol Szymanowski’s sonata in D-Minor.

Teaching is particularly important for Julia Fischer. Her students are already very successfull and are being invited by renowned orchestras. In February 2019, she will be performing Bach’s concerto BW 1064 and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante at the Berliner Philharmonie, together with two of her students, Eva Zavaro and Louis Vandory, and the Kammerakademie Potsdam.

Fischer is regularly giving master classes at the Musikferien am Starnberger See.

The violinist has received numerous accolades, such as the German Federal Cross of Merit and the Gramophone Award.

Julia Fischer plays a violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini (1742) as well as a Philipp Augustin violin (2018).
