Another Great Performer:
- Violinist Julia Fischer
A couple of days ago I watched Julia Fischer perform with a small chamber group. They were playing the music of Vivaldi. Often I react to this music negatively because it is so over-played. But I enjoyed Ms. Fischer’s interpretation very much. I found her music to be warm, sensitive, and polished; and her technique was immaculate.
The scene of the performance was outdoors, and it was recorded on a beautiful summer day.
A few years ago I heard Ms. Fischer perform at the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado; I was also able to chat with her briefly as we both waited for the start of a chamber music concert where we were both listeners. She was very cordial, warm, and personable. She was willing to talk actively about many topics. One of the things that I learned is that she is also a terrific pianist.
Here is that summer concerto by Vivaldi, as played very beautifully by Ms. Fischer:
And here is a video of Julia Fischer, playing the Vivaldi “Four Seasons – Winter”
Finally, here is Julia Fischer performing Mendelssohn’s Violin concerto
