Iván Fischer conducts Strauss and Mahler

“Mahler’s First Symphony is very close to me,” says Iván Fischer. “Perhaps because I hear in it a great deal of Mahler’s middle-class, assimilated Jewish background – from which I come myself.” He also conducts music by Mahler’s contemporary Richard Strauss: a selection of waltzes from Rosenkavalier and the Duet­ Concertino with clarinettist Wenzel Fuchs and bassoonist Stefan Schweigert, principal wind players with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
