MTT and Julia Fischer

“Equal to every technical and musical hurdle…astonishing violin playing by any standard,” raves London’s Sunday Times of fiery young virtuoso Julia Fischer.  She joins the San Francisco Symphony in Prokofiev’s blistering First Violin Concerto.  And MTT conducts Berlioz’s mesmerizing symphonic hallucination, the Symphonie fantastique.
