Ivan Fischer accepts Concertgebouw postmain
The Hungarian conductor, who is based in Amsterdam, has accepted the title of honorary guest conductor from September 2021, working with the orchestra two or three weeks each season.
It’s a neither-here-nor-there appointment. The orchestra has lacked a music director since it fired Daniele Gatti. Fischer has performed with them praxtically every year since 1987 without being considered for the top job.
