A five star rating from the renowned Danish newspaper Berlingske for the concert last Sunday of the Danish Chamber Orchestra and Adam Fischer at Copenhagen´s Royal Academy of Music, which marked the 20th anniversary of Fischer´s successful collaboration with the orchestra. Soon after their first concert together 20 years ago, the orchestra appointed Adam Fischer as their Chief Conductor and he has remained loyal to the ensemble in this function to this day. This artistic partnership has found its expression especially in a highly acclaimed and award-winning recording of Mozart´s complete symphonic work. They now continue their successful work with a Beethoven cycle. Their passionate interpretation oft he seventh Symphony at the anniversary concert met with long applause by an enthusiastic audience.
In their up-coming subscription concerts the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker and Principal Conductor Adam Fischer will continue their successful Mahler cycle with performances of Mahler´s 3rd Symphony.
Their recordings of Symphonies No 7 and 4 have already been published and won them high critical acclaim.
„Fischer maintains a clear sense of momentum through the five movements and firmly keeps the symphony on its "from dusk till dawn" trajectory. The Düsseldorf Symphony plays with skill and precision, keeping together without any signs of fatigue and playing with the commitment and passionate intensity of the world's great Mahler orchestras. (..) This Seventh is an excellent indicator of great things to come.“ (Allmusic.com,March 2017)
“Adam Fischer leads a completely convincing interpretation of the symphony. The truculent first movement flows with unusual coherence; the two Nachtmusiks are perfectly paced, the creepy scherzo has a nicely slithery transparency of texture, and the finale rises to an aptly raucous final.“ (Classictoday.com, March 2017)
Adam Fischer will conduct the Wiener Symphoniker at the Vienna Musikverein in two different projects this season. He and the Viennese orchestra enjoy a long standing relationship.
