"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." published the ICMA jury. Adam Fischer is very pleased and grateful for this award. He hopes that many more works will be added in his life.
