Maestro move: Cellist replaces conductor, with immediate effect

Adam Fischer has stepped down from the Haydn Philharmonic Orchestra that he founded in 1987, continuing as conductor laureate. He will be replaced in the podium from today by the cellist Nicolas Altstaedt.

The orchestra is composed, like Joseph Haydn himself, of Austrian and Hungarian strands.

  • Toscanini was a cellist who started his conducting career in Rio, stepping in at the minute… We all know what happened. I wish Nicolas Altstaedt much success.
