The works heard in this programme – some of the most important works written for violin and cello – were written surprisingly late, some of them a decade or more after the dawn of the Modern era: Kodály 1914; Ravel 1922; Schulhoff 1925. Although these three works can scarcely be regarded as avant-garde for their time, at least where their tonality is concerned, a new spirit is in the air: a freely ranging search on all levels for new forms and means of expression, coupled with a love of experimentation with extremely sparse scoring.

The conventional view of Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices puts them among the encores and etudes violinists use to hone their skills and show off their prowess. But Julia Fischer regards them primarily as expressive works that are as rich in lyricism and emotional color as they are in advanced techniques, and her 2010 Decca album shows her considered approach to the music. There's no doubt about Fischer's impressive abilities, which are apparent from hearing the first Caprice, and all the trickiest double- and triple-stops, bowing styles, and various means of articulation that are included in this fantastic work reveal her phenomenal gifts. But as amazing as Fischer's performance is for sheer technique, it is highly pleasurable because of her polished musicality and firm control of every nuance that is either overt or suggested in the music. The notoriously difficult Caprice No. 6, which Fischer plays con sordino, has a special ghostly quality that makes it much more ethereal and Romantic in character than an exercise in playing trills. Even the ever-popular Caprice No. 9, and that favorite of composers of variations, the Caprice No. 24, have a freshness and vitality that come directly from Fischer's genuine feelings, not merely her dazzling skills. Decca's sound is crisp and clean, so the full range of the violin's timbres and dynamics come through without studio boosting. Highly recommended.

This performance takes the music seriously, and Fischer more than holds her own in the outer movements where the violin needs to be able to confront the orchestra fearlessly in their ongoing dialog. In the lengthy andante, once again Fischer projects passion and sincerity without excessive histrionics.

The Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto suffers no shortage of recordings. But this new one from German violinist Julia Fischer, still in her early 20s, is an ear-opener. There's a refreshing forthrightness to her playing, a welcome unwillingness to sentimentalize music quite able to speak for itself. And her virtuosity in the finale sounds utterly effortless.

“Since the foundation of PentaTone Classics in 2001, their enterprising programming; appealing contemporary presentations; consistently high quality performances and state of the art recordings have been nothing short of astonishing. I look forward enthusiastically to each of their stylish new releases and this hybrid Super Audio CD of Mendelssohn’s two Piano Trios was no exception. After a check of the accompanying marketing information it seems that this disc has already been selected as a Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’ and the recipient of a Diapason d’Or award.

German violinist Julia Fischer, 24 years old when this recording was released, is surely a bright new star, all charisma as her diminutive self stands between conductor and collaborator Yakov Kreizberg and violist Gordan Nikolic on the cover of this disc. She has a steely technique that she brings to Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante in E flat, K. 364 – not a steely work, but the musicianship here is superb. Fischer and Nikolic make an attractive pair in the work, her razor-sharp tone set against his gutsier sound production, all the contrasts held together by Kreizberg's brisk tempos and no-nonsense forward drive.

Julia Fischer is joined by Yakov Kreizberg and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, as the musicians explore three Mozart concertos for violin and orchestra. The program includes Mozart’s joyous first two concertos and his complex fifth. This highly anticipated work follows the pair’s successful recording of Mozart’s Concertos Nos. 3 and 4. Fischer delivers a radiant performance filled with lyricism and refined charm, while Kreizberg commands the well-balanced orchestra with vibrant spontaneity.

Regardless of her age, this stunning disc confirms her as one of the world's leading musicians… Here it feels as if she is off the leash a bit, allowing herself to broaden out and savour the moment. She channels great feeling (at times the violin fairly weeps) without sounding lachrymose. Muller-Schott matches her for lyricism and virtuosity in the Double Concerto, which he, Fischer and Kreizberg invest with beauty and, increasingly, a sense of urgency. In all, a fabulous disc, which repays playing again and again. Actually, you probably won't be able to help yourself.

It is a sign of great artistry when performers can take a composer's lesser works and make them compelling. That Fischer and Helmchen have done so with Schubert's modest violin and piano works to such joyous effect is remarkable. The revelation comes when Fischer joins Helmchen at the piano in the sublime Fantasia.
