The Hungarian-born conductor Adam Fischer is much in demand within both the opera and concert repertoire and has cooperated with a great number of leading international concert halls and opera houses, including the Vienna State Opera, La Scala, the Metropolitan Opera as well as such orchestras as the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2019, he gained the international Wolf Prize, was nominated Conductor of the Year by PrestoClassical in the UK and received an Orchestral Award from the BBC Music Magazine for his recording of Mahler’s First Symphony with the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra. In 2022, he received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from International Classical Music Awards (ICMA).
Brahms was 43 years old when, after a long period of maturation, his First Symphony was published. The conductor Felix Weingartner commented on it ‘taking hold like the claw of a lion’ and its urgency marked a new phase in Brahms’ musical development. The Second Symphony is traditionally seen as the pastoral element in the cycle, while the Third, with its melodic beauty, has the courage to end quietly, an act of astonishing serenity. The compelling Passacaglia finale of the Fourth Symphony represents a fitting summation to one of the greatest symphonic cycles in the classical canon.
