Description

Iván Fischer, known worldwide as a conductor, has recently come to the fore as a composer. Fischer began composing at the age of twenty, writing, as he says, in an avant-garde style fitting for that age. But it all came to an end as he became more and more absorbed by conducting. Some thirty years later, however, the urge to take up the pen again became irresistible: “A feeling as though I found my true self.” He describes himself not as a composer but as a composing conductor, and the many composers whose music he conducts are his teachers and his sources of inspiration.
This CD presents a portrait of the composer Iv.n Fischer. The following liner notes are based largely on his own commentary and on that of Habakuk Traber (who writes for the Deutsches Sinfonie Orchester Berlin).

Notes about the number of tracks:
I have taken the liberty to make the last piece of work ‘Tsuchigumo’ as one track (in the booklet 16 – 25) as many sections play through to the next without stopping.

Press reviews

Fono Forum 6.25 out of 5

Das eigentlich Interessante und vielleicht ach besondere an Fischers Stilpluralismus ist aber, wie ambivalent er zwischen Humor und Melancholie bewegt (…) immer überzeugend die Stimme von Fischers Tochter Nora!

Classica [Nov, France] 6.25 out of 5

(…) cette musique portée par les souvenirs douloureux et le Sehnsucht, est interprétée aves autant de soin que de saveur.

Klassiek Centraal [Nominatie Gouden Label]

Dat de Hongaarse dirigent Iván Fischer finesse uitstraalt, is een understatement. Hij ademt het moeiteloos. DecdComposers Portrait 1 doet zijn reputatie alle eer aan. Hij ontdekte namelijk het recept waardoor men Yiddische volksliederen als volwaardig erfgoed binnen onze Europese cultuur kan beschouwen en savoureren.
