"Fischer is such a fleet, silver-toned soloist, quick to gambol and quicker to charm . . . Through hesitations, piquant phrasings, improvisatory flourishes and limpid stretches of gorgeous hush she always keeps the music alive." – The Times
". . . a star act on a high . . . bright, attenuated sound, vibrantly expressive but never overbearing" – Gramophone
Celebrating the showpieces of violin legend Pablo Sarasate, star violinist Julia Fischer shines a new light on Sarasate's music with her new album for Decca/Universal Music Classics. One of the leading violinists of her generation, Fischer delivers virtuoso pyrotechnics while demonstrating the extreme technical challenges of the music. A follow-up to her well-received 2013 Decca release Bruch/Dvořák, Fischer stated that she wantsSarasate to communicate its inherent joy and enthusiasm as she finds each piece to have a mood and story all its own.
