  • Bruch and Dvorak Violin Concertos

On this recording, violinist Julia Fischer pairs the ever-popular Bruch violin concerto with Dvorák’s undeservedly neglected, but lovely masterpiece. Her playing is beautiful, with great phrasing, impeccable technique, and fine musical feeling.

Here are some selections of Julia Fischer’s mastery from my Spotify playlists:

On this CD, we get to hear the following:


  • Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26


  • Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 53

Performed by Julia Fischer (violin), with the Zürich Tonhalle Orchestra, conducted by David Zinman

Reviewing Julia Fischer’s performance of the Dvorák Concerto in London, The Guardian wrote:

“Dvorák’s Violin Concerto, a romantic showpiece too often passed over in favor of Bruch and Mendelssohn, has a piquant slow movement to compete with either. Fischer made sure we heard every note, handing us each bar with absolute technical assurance and in a lustrous, seamless tone.”

Here are Julia Fischer and cellist Daniel Muller Schott performing the “Passacaglia” by Handel:
