Iván Fischer (b.1951): Composer's Portrait 1 / Nora Fischer; Wim Van Hasselt; Iván Fischer, Budapest Festival Orchestra

Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Iván Fischer is becoming increasingly well-known as a composer. He began writing around the age of twenty, in a rather avant-garde style, but composing was sidelined as he became more and more absorbed by conducting. Some thirty years later, the urge to take up the pen again became irresistible. Fischer claims it was ''a feeling as though I found my true self.'' He continues to describe himself not as a composer but as a ''composing conductor.'' For he credits the many composers whose music he conducts as his teachers and his sources of inspiration. This recording presents a portrait of Fischer the composer and includes world premičre recordings of eight works including A German-Yiddish Cantata and Tsuchigumo.
