Biography
Fischer studied flute with Aurèle Nicolet and began his musical career as Principal Flute in Hamburg and at the Zurich Opera, where he studied scores with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and was profoundly influenced by him. His conducting career began in his 30's when he replaced an ailing colleague, subsequently directing his first few concerts with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe where he was Principal Flute under Claudio Abbado, who encouraged and inspired him in his new-found talent for conducting. Spending his apprentice years in Holland, Thierry Fischer has since appeared with many leading orchestras in the UK and Europe.
During his tenure with the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast, Fischer has toured with the orchestra to Prague and New York and appeared several times at the BBC Proms, conducted cycles of Schubert, Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann (in 2006) and Honegger, and made a critically acclaimed series of recordings of the works of Jean Francaix for Hyperion Records.
Fischer's popularity in the UK has brought him most recently to the Philharmonia, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Halle and BBC Symphony. His guest engagements have also included the radio orchestras of Paris (Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France), Stockholm, Hanover and Saarbruecken; the Berlin Symphony, Netherlands Philharmonic, Orchestra Verdi di Milano, Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony.
In parallel to his symphonic career, Fischer's collaborative approach has fostered strong relationships with several prestigious chamber orchestras, notably the Scottish Chamber, Northern Sinfonia and Dutch Radio Chamber, all of whom invite him at least once every season. He has also conducted the Australian Chamber, Lausanne and Zurich chamber orchestras, and the Munich Chamber.
