Experience the wild abandon of Beethoven’s Seventh (Wagner called it “the apotheosis of the dance itself”). Mendelssohn’s beloved masterpiece — “the heart’s jewel” among German violin concertos, declared a contemporary — will yield its emotional riches when played by Julia Fischer. Our concert opens with Prokofiev’s charming First Symphony, its “Classical” inspiration provided by Haydn.

From 2006 to 2010 he served as principal guest conductor of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, and in the summer of 2012 he made his debut at the Bayreuth Festival leading a production of Wagner’s Parsifal. He returns to New York in the spring of 2019 to conduct Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen at The Metropolitan Opera.

As a symphonic conductor, Mr. Jordan has worked with such renowned European orchestras as the Berlin, Munich, and Vienna philharmonic orchestras, and the Vienna Symphony, Radio Symphony Orchestra of Vienna, Orchestra Philharmonique de Radio France, Philharmonia Orchestra London, Orchestra dell’Accademia nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Zurich’s Tonhalle-Orchester, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, Salzburg Mozarteumorchester, and London Symphony Orchestra.

One of the world´s leading violinists, Julia Fischer is a versatile musician also known for her extraordinary talent as a concert pianist, chamber musician and violin teacher. She received her first violin and piano lessons at a very young age, and at age nine began studying with renowned violin professor Ana Chumachenco, later becoming her successor at the Munich Academy of Music. Winning the first prize at the 1995 international Yehudi Menuhin Competition was an early milestone in her career, and she has since performed with top orchestras and conductors worldwide.

M.s Fischer’s season highlights include two tours of Asia, one with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, the other with the Dresden Philharmonic and Michael Sanderling. She is also joined by violinist Augustin Hadelich for a tour of Germany with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Highlights of last season include concerts with the Bavarian State Orchestra and Kirill Petrenko at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie and at Carnegie Hall, and a residency with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Philippe Jordan.

In 2011 Ms. Fischer founded her own quartet with Alexander Sitkovetsky, Nils Mönkemeyer, and Benjamin Nyffenegger. At a concert at the Alte Oper Frankfurt in 2010, she made her debut as a concert pianist, performing both the Grieg Piano Concerto and Saint-Saëns’s Violin Concerto No. 3 in one evening.

Julia Fischer has released numerous critically acclaimed recordings, first on the Pentatone label and later with Decca. Breaking new ground in the classical music market, she launched her own music platform, the JF CLUB, which offers exclusive audio and video footage, previews of her new recordings, and personal insight into music and her work. Her awards include the Federal Cross of Merit, Gramophone Award, and the German Culture Prize. She plays violins by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini (1742) and Phillipp Augustin (2018).
