"Orchestral Choice. There isn’t an aspect of any of these works in which this world-class virtuoso fails to excel ... superbly natural ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

ECHO Klassik Award - Instrumentalist of the Year (Violin), 2007

"Four Stars ... sonically potent ... sweet midrange miking has captured Fischer’s velvet or pungent 1750 instrument in high definition."
- Audiophile Audition

"Editor's Choice ... she is greatly helped by the conducting of Kreizberg with the Russian National Orchestra, both taut and sympathetic, with an ideal balance which allows the soloist the widest range of dynamic ... Fischer again demonstrates what a great and distinctive artist she is."
- Gramophone

"There are any number of reasons to like this ... foremost among them, of course, is the impeccable beauty and accuracy of Julia Fischer’s playing ... a beautiful performance, reinforced by Kreizberg’s sensitive accompaniment and a more beautiful sounding wind section than I thought I’d ever hear in a Russian orchestra. Another reason to like this disc is PentaTone’s sonics ... highly recommended."
- Fanfare

Julia Fischer and her regular collaborators, the Russian National Orchestra and conductor Yakov Kreizberg, deliver this Tchaikovsky programme including his popular Violin Concerto, a true showcase for Fischer's virtuosity. The album is rounded out with other pieces, notably the intimate Souvenir d’un lieu cher, featuring Kreizberg alone at the piano accompanying Fischer.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
