About the event
World-famous conductor Iván Fischer turns 70 on January 20. In addition to holding the post of music director of the Budapest Festival Orchestra co-founded by him in 1983, he is also honorary guest conductor of the Concertgebouworkest in Amsterdam and honorary conductor of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin.
The three prestigious orchestras are celebrating the maestro’s birthday together, broadcasting a joint production compiled from works composed, conducted or directed by him or some of his most memorable concerts on their websites on the special date at 8:30 p.m. The roughly 90-minute concert film available for free viewing also features excerpts from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 or Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, and staged concert versions of the operas The Marriage of Figaro and Falstaff, interspersed with greetings from some of his well-known fans and friends.
On our Youtube-channel, the concert film will be available for watching for 3 days.
