ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday, Julia Fischer!

A former first prize winner at the Menuhin Competition, Fischer is widely regarded as one of today’s foremost young instrumentalists

Today is German violin virtuoso Julia Fischer's 38th birthday!

She performs and records regularly with the world’s eminent conductors and orchestras. As a chamber musician and teacher, Fischer is also an accomplished concert pianist. In 2008, when she was performing around 90 concerts a year as a violinist, Fisher made a notable debut as a pianist — playing Saint-Saëns' Violin Concerto No. 3 and Grieg's Piano Concerto as a soloist with the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie on the same concert.

She currently performs on a 1742 Guadagnini violin as well as a modern instrument made by Phillipp Augustin.
