Fischer directs his orchestra with a watchmaker’s precision.
According to Diapason, Iván Fischer is “considered to be one of the most highly-prized conductors in the world”. He is also a composer, head of the Budapest Festival Orchestra and guest conductor at the prestigious philharmonics of Berlin, Vienna and New York. Fischer directs his orchestra with a watchmaker’s precision, according to his own personal, meticulous and refined vision of each piece.
Pianist Anna Vinnitskaya, of the “steel fist and fairy-like fingers” (Classica) and winner of the Concours Reine Elisabeth in 2007, will guest on the first part, enchanting, rather than merely playing the piano, revealing the passionate side of Schumann’s Piano Concerto, one of the 19th century’s most beautiful pieces.
The orchestra will continue with Bruckner’s magnificent Symphony n°9, a masterpiece of late Austrian romanticism.
