He has led the orchestra in symphonic cycles of Saint-Saëns, Ives, Nielsen, Mahler and others, and has recorded Mahler’s ‘Resurrection’ symphony with the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He has conducted the orchestra in Utah’s five national parks and forged outreach links in Haiti. In celebration of the orchestra’s 75th anniversary in 2016, he brought the orchestra to Carnegie Hall for the first time in forty years, and commissioned new works by Nico Muhly, Andrew Norman and Augusta Read Thomas.

Principal Guest Conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic since January 2017, he visits Seoul at least four times a season and in November 2018 toured with them to Europe, garnering excellent reviews. Whilst Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales from 2006 to 2012 Fischer appeared every year at the BBC Proms and toured internationally.

Fischer started out as Principal Flute in Hamburg and at the Zurich Opera; his conducting career began 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. He spent his apprentice years in Holland, and then became Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Ulster Orchestra from 2001 to 2006. He was Chief Conductor of the Nagoya Philharmonic from 2008 to 2011, making his Suntory Hall debut in Tokyo in May 2010, and is now Honorary Guest Conductor.
