About Ádám Fischer
Conductor Adam Fischer (sometimes written Ádám in the Hungarian manner) has been active with an unusually wide variety of orchestras and operatic ensembles. He has founded three major festivals, the Haydn Tage in Eisenstadt, Austria, a Gustav Mahler Festival in Kassel, Germany, and the Wagner Days at Budapest's Palace of the Arts. His long recording career began with a 1988 recording of Bartók's Bluebeard's Castle with the Hungarian State Orchestra. Fischer has made numerous guest operatic conducting appearances, including a complete Wagner Ring cycle in 2002 that brought him a conductor of the year nod from Germany's Opernwelt magazine. His vast discography includes complete cycles of both Haydn's symphonies and those of Mozart. In the 2010s, Fischer led the Danish Chamber Orchestra in a cycle of Beethoven's symphonies. A recording of the Mahler's Symphony No. 6 with the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker appeared in 2021.
