Adam Fischer - Conducter
Adam Fischer is together with his brother Ivan Fischer, one of the renowned conductors of his generation. Born in Budapest, he founded the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic in 1987, which includes musicians from both his home countries, Austria and Hungary. At the same time, he founded the Haydn Festival Eisenstadt, where an international centre for Haydn cultivation has existed ever since.
Whether in Bayreuth, at the Metropolitan Opera or La Scala in Milan, whether with the Vienna or the Berlin Philharmonic, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment or the Salzburg Festival: Adam Fischer is appreciated by audiences and musicians alike as a bridge builder between the world of music and the society in which we live. He acquired his profound understanding of opera and his unusually broad repertoire in classical career steps from répétiteur (Graz) to general music director (Freiburg, Kassel, Mannheim and Budapest). In 1978 he took over the “Fidelio” conducting at the Bavarian State Opera for Karl Böhm and celebrated his international breakthrough. Since then he has been a guarantor for gripping opera evenings at all the world’s great houses. He is most closely associated with the Vienna State Opera, which made him an honorary member in 2017. In addition, he still regularly provides impressive opera evenings and concerts in Budapest, especially during the International Festival there. Adam Fischer will make his debut with the RSB in 2023.
