"Julia Fischer shows real poise and elegance in Mozart violin concertos ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... full of disciplined subtlety and astonishing interpretative maturity ... the traditional style performance lacking nothing in warmth. The relaxed, cantabile style of her playing in the final movement serves the dancelike nature of Mozart's music."
- Gramophone

"Clarity fuses with warmth ... the finale is etched with a certain smiling swagger and Fischer ensures that tonal shading is always musically deployed. It’s a most enjoyable reading ... I was particularly taken by the warm and supportive cushion Kreizberg provides in the Adagio.
- MusicWeb International

Violinist Julia Fischer, her frequent conductor collaborator Yakov Kreizberg and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra come together for this recording of two of Mozart's earliest violin concertos. The programme is rounded out with Mozart's Adagio and Rondo, both for violin and orchestra. Fischer, in her early twenties when this album was recorded, was only slightly older than Mozart was when he composed these two concertos.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
