Poème by Julia Fischer
Released: May 2011
Label: Decca
Fischer's passionate and often emotionally resonant program brings together four post-Romantic works for violin and orchestra that are not traditional concertos: Ottorino Respighi's Poema Autunnale, Josef Suk's G Minor Fantasy, Ernest Chausson's Poème and Ralph Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending. Aside from the ferocious single-movement concerto by Suk, these are largely melancholic poems that follow the same dramatic shape. Fisher scores with all of them, and it's a pleasure to hear these pieces played with such sensitivity. The standout is the Respighi, which truly sings.
