Beginning on 5 March, Thierry begins as Music Director of the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, conducting Beethoven Missa Solemnis in Ré Maior, Op.123 at the Sala São Paulo.
Thierry said the following about the engagement:
“Beethoven was constantly striving towards new horizons, and I so I cannot imagine a more fitting start to my new relationship in Sao Paulo, than to join forces with the OSESP choir and orchestra for his revelatory Missa Solemnis”.
This follows “an electrifying Beethoven 7 from a faultless Brussels Philharmonic and an utterly committed Thierry Fischer” two weeks ago at Brussels Flagey; “ brisk tempi, springy rhythms, a sense of suspense, irrepressible energy, properly surprising transitions…very taut, invigorating, electrifying…and yet with finelly chiselled articulation” – Resmusica, February 2020.
Thierry was recently interviewed by OSESP Artistic Director Arthur Nestrovski regarding his youth as Principal flute player for the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the influence of conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Read the full interview here.
