Thierry Fischer (conductor)

Since being appointed Music Director of the Utah Symphony in 2009, Thierry Fischer has led the orchestra in symphonic cycles of Saint-Saëns, Ives, Nielsen and Mahler, the latter with the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He has also 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. As Principal Guest Conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic since January 2017, he visits Seoul at least four times a season. He has toured to Europe with the orchestra, and plays an important role in its artistic planning.

Fischer has recently toured the USA with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted the London Philharmonic at the Royal Festival Hall, and appeared with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic and Bournemouth Symphony orchestras. In recent seasons he has also conducted symphony orchestras and at festivals across the USA, UK and Europe. He continues to enjoy the collaborative aspect of working with smaller ensembles such as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Scottish, Swedish and Munich chamber orchestras, London Sinfonietta and Ensemble Intercontemporain. His most recent projects include several staged works: Hans Zender’s adaptation of Schubert’s Winterreise in Strasbourg, Bernstein’s Candide in both Utah and Seoul, and Mozart’s Magic Flute with Utah Opera. He is committed to contemporary music and has commissioned and premiered many pieces.

Fischer began his career as a flautist: he started conducting in his thirties when he replaced an ailing colleague, and subsequently directed his first few concerts with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe where he was principal flute. He spent his apprentice years in Holland, and has held posts with the Ulster Orchestra (2001-2006), BBC National Orchestra of Wales (2006-2012) and the Nagoya Philharmonic (2008-2011) of which he is now Honorary Guest Conductor.

Thierry’s Hyperion discography includes a series of the orchestral music of Jean Françaix with the Ulster Orchestra and an ICMA Award-winning recording of Frank Martin’s Der Sturm with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus.
