A very generously filled CD with three appealing Russian violin concertos played by this month’s ’One to watch’, Julia Fischer. [The RNO] under Yakov Kreizberg accompany superbly and if, as the booklet implies, this CD was made in two days then the concentration level must have been immense! James Jolly
The GramohoneJulia Fischer stands out. What’s most impressive on this disc is [Julia Fischer’s] revitalization of the Khatchaturian Violin Concerto Fischer makes it sound fresh again. In part, the bloom results from her burnished tone (sensuous but firmly focused) and her confident technique (note the rhythmic definition of her opening gestures); simply as virtuoso display, this is a charismatic performance. But there’s a lot more than surface appeal. Because of her unwavering concentration, she managesto make each detail, each swing in mood, register clearly, and because of her unflagging sense of shape, she makes sure that each element contributes to a lucid unfolding of the overall structure. a nobility unmatched by any other recording I knowurgently recommended. Peter J. Rabonowitz
International Record Review

“All in all, this is a very impressive CD debut for Fischer. I look forward to listening to it repeatedly in the coming months, and to hearing still more from her, in the future.” Barry Brenesal

Since January is a good time to celebrate new life, I’d like to give a warm if belated welcome to Julia Fischer’s debut disc on PentaTone Classics of Russian violin concertos (5186 059). Barely 21, this German talent delivers Khachaturian, Glazunov and Prokofiev No 1 with a lyrical fervour and unwavering confidence that deserves to win her many new fans; she’s already far beyond promising, well into full achievement. With this repertoire, no pale loitering by musicians is allowed; happily, Yakov Kreizberg and the Russian National Orchestra make ideal, full-blooded partners. If this CD doesn’t banish winter chills, frankly, nothing will.”
The Times

“ Fischer offers scintillating readings of the Khachaturian, Prokofiev’sgreat Violin Concerto No. 1 and Glazunov’s strangely meandering Violin Concerto. Besides being smart and accomplished, the violinist enjoys an astonishing ease of expression that recalls young Itzhak Perlman and Gil Shaham. In some ways, Fischer surpasses them with buoyant, lyrical
sensibility behind her technique.” David Patrick Stearns
Philadelphia Enquirer

“ A striking début sees a young violinist doing full justice to a work she loves… The freshness of her way with the Khachaturian is immediately striking in the chattering figuration of the opening, and she brings a rare tenderness to the lyrical second subject…The clarity of Fischer’s performance in the finale brings lightness and sparkle…A unique coupling, superbly recorded.” Edward Greenfield
