Kosmos Kammermusik: Julia Fischer Quartett

For many years, Julia Fischer, Alexander Sitkovetsky, Nils Mönkemeyer and the deputy principal cellist of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Benjamin Nyffenegger, havebeen showcasing their top-class quartet playing during an annual joint creative period. "The quartet period is always the highlight of the season for me. The four of us not only enjoy playing together, we are also close friends," says Julia Fischer, hovering for weeks afterwards each time. "It connects us that we are both never satisfied, in a positive sense." Even as the quartet takes its bows after a piece, ideas are sometimes still exchanged on stage about what could be even better in the next concert. The idea for the string quartet was born in 2010, when the four of them were able to work on a broad repertoire at Julia Fischer's own festival on Lake Starnberg. Here, personalities came together who all contribute equally, but also respond to each other to the same degree – a brilliant combination.
