Julia Fischer Review

On Thursday night at Campbell Hall, German violinist Julia Fischer reaffirmed her reputation as being one of the world's most technically gifted talents by providing a riveting and emotional performance with piano accompaniment, Milana Chernyavska. With the many accolades to her name (Artist of the Year at the '07 Gramophone Awards, Instrumentalist of the Year in the '09 MIDEM Classical Awards, releasing the fastest-selling classical album on iTunes in '09) along with prestitgious international awards peppering her extensive resumé, Fischer performed Mozart's "Sonata for Piano and Violin in B-flat Major", Schubert's "Rondo for Violin and Piano in B minor," Debussy's "Sonata for Violin and Piano in G Minor," and Saint-Saëns' "Sonata for Violin and PIano No. 1 in D minor" with mesmerizing mastery and technical achievement. Extra chairs had to be provided to the patrons of the full venue who were taken by Fischer's rousing interpretations of these classics with a technique that powerfully combines reputable tradition with impressive range. The juxtaposition of rigid composition with natural cohesion and sonic continuity elucidates Fischer's innate ability to weave together a performance that illicits a powerful response from both those well-versed in classical music and those just beginning their journey into this beautifully tender and compelling musical terrain.
