German violinist Julia Fischer (pictured) will perform Prokofiev’s first violin concerto with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Mariss Jansons at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, March 15 at 2:00PM. The concert will be Ms. Fischer’s first New York City performance since the release in January of her debut Decca recording of Bach concertos recorded with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields which was the highest-selling classical debut in iTunes history. The Carnegie Hall concert follows concerts in ten U.S. cities this month leading the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields on its 50th Anniversary tour.

Following the current tour, Ms. Fischer will make numerous U.S. appearances in coming months with the Boston Symphony Orchestra (April 16-18), Los Angeles Philharmonic (May 22-24), Philadelphia Orchestra (May 28-31) and the San Francisco Symphony (June 3-7). In addition to her Orchestral engagements, Ms. Fischer will tour eight U.S. cities performing in recital with pianist Milana Chernyavska in April/May. She will return to Carnegie Hall in 2010 to perform two all-Bach programs in Zankel Hall March 31 and April 1.

Voted “Best Newcomer” by BBC Music Magazine in 2006 and acclaimed as “Artist of the Year” in the prestigious Classic FM Gramophone Awards only a year later, 25-year-old Ms. Fischer is already being hailed as one of the great violinists of the twenty-first century. A student of famed violinist Ana Chumachenco, Ms. Fischer is herself Germany’s youngest Professor of Violin at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main. She lives in Munich, Germany.
