Info
“It’s probably not possible to play the violin significantly better or more beautifully”, said a reviewer for the Berliner Tagesspiegel of one concert by this year’s Artist in Residence at the Wiener Symphoniker, Julia Fischer, who will begin her residency with these concerts. Fittingly, the programme features the Violin Concerto in E minor by Felix Mendelssohn – for many the violin concerto par excellence – for which Fischer is widely regarded as the ideal interpreter. Music Director Philippe Jordan has correspondingly high expectations of the collaboration: “It’s quite simply a joy to work with her – not least because we’ll learn so much from her.”
