Julia Fischer has belonged to the world’s violin elite for twenty years. Her artistic diversity also emerges in her work as a pianist, chamber musician and professor. She is the first artist in the classical music world to found her own music platform the JF Club.
Born in Munich to German-Slovak parents, Julia Fischer received her first music lesson on the violin aged only 3. Soon afterwards, her mother Viera Fischer began taking piano lessons. At the age of 9, Julia Fischer became a junior pupil of the renowned violin professor Ana Chumachenco at the College of Music and Drama in Munich where, in 2011, she took over as Chumachenco’s successor.
Julia Fischer makes guest appearances with the most famous orchestras and conductors across the world. She is also an enthusiastic chamber musician, from which her quartet – with Alexander Sitkovetsky, Nils Mönkemeyer and Benjamin Nyffenegger – grew.
In 2017 Julia Fischer founded the JF Club, her own music platform – the only place to hear her new recordings – and where she regularly posts articles, videos and insights into her work through personal meetings. In doing so she is breaking new ground in the classical music market. As of the current season, the club’s first works will appear as a limited edition in an exclusive JF Club edition at Hässler Classic on Vinyl.
Julia Fischer plays a Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin (1742) and a new violin by Philipp Augustin (2018).
