Julia Fischer and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields

Always an ace up your sleeve

03 May 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

They exist, these very special combinations of works that can only be found in the programmes of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields: Haydn's legendary "Farewell Symphony", with which he discreetly pointed out to Prince Esterházy that his musicians needed a holiday, and Tchaikovsky's "Souvenir d'un lieu cher" is such a typically ingenious combination. The longing to be allowed to leave the Esterházys' country estate, at least for a time, meets here with the longing to be allowed to visit the country estate of the patroness Nadeshda von Meck again. And with Julia Fischer as soloist, the chamber orchestra has another ace up its sleeve that guarantees a successful evening. The unpretentious top violinist has been closely associated with the Academy for years - there are no teething problems with this well-rehearsed team, the harmony on stage is immediately right, and the spark jumps directly into the hall..
