Adam Fischer honored with the ICMA Lifetime Achivement Award

24 | Jan | 2022

The Chief Conductor of The Danish Chamber Orchestra, Adam Fischer, is being honored with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at this year’s International Classical Musical Awards (ICMA’s).

Adam Fischer will receive the special award for his lifelong work within classical music.

“For decades Adam Fischer has enriched the discographic catalogues with mostly complete recordings of symphonists like Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven or Mahler as well as selected operas. His interpretations, always full of character, display tonal refinement and a broad spectrum of colour as well as striking tempos, drama and clarity. In particular, his many interpretations of 18th century repertoire enable the listeners to experience new views. Adam Fischer always stands for artistic alternatives in the best sense,” the jury says.

Adam Fischer will receive the ICMA trophy during the annual Awards Ceremony, which will take place at the Philharmonie in Luxembourg on 21 April 2022. This evening will also include a Gala Concert with the participation from a selection of the winners and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Adam Fischer himself.

This will not the first time Fischer has received an ICMA award. In 2020 the Danish Chamber Orchestra and Adam Fischer received the main award ‘Recording of the Year’ for their recording of Beethoven’s symphonies. Of the nineteen citations in the audio and video categories, the box set of Beethoven’s complete symphonies received two awards: The collection won the ‘Symphonic Music’ category and ‘Recording of the Year’.

ICMA is one of the biggest international music awards in the world.
