When it comes to conducting an orchestra performing the symphonies of Brahm’s, Maestro Asher Fisch, an Israeli conductor is the best pick.
Fisch made his United States debut in 1995, conducting Der Fliegende Holländer at the Los Angeles Opera. From 1995 to 2000, he was chief conductor of the Vienna Volksoper. He served as music director of Israeli Opera from 1998 to 2008. Seattle Opera named him its principal guest conductor in October 2007.
Fisch first guest-conducted the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) in 1999. In May 2012, WASO announced the appointment of Fisch as its next principal conductor, effective 1 January 2014, with an initial contract of 3 years. By September 2015, the WASO announced the extension of Fisch's contract until the end of 2019. It was at WASO that Fisch recorded his love for Brahm’s Symphonies.
