WASO – Asher Fisch Conducts & Plays Mozart

March 7, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$18 - $87
past concert

To open WASO’s 2014 season new Principal Conductor Asher Fisch (who is replacing Paul Daniels) will be conducting and playing (a Mozart piano concerto). It should be a very interesting night – with a pre-concert talk about the program, and a post-concert party on the riverside balcony, and much good music between – I think the spectacle of a conductor’s first outing is something to be excited about – Fisch has been playing with WASO for many years, but I do think that in taking on the role of principal conductor there is an expectation of more; more direction, more vision, more commitment, all hopeful amounting to better music. It’ll be wonderful to hear this concert – for those that can’t make it, WASO will be broadcasting it live on iiNET’s freezone, and the repeat concert will be on Saturday 8th March.


Mozart (The Magic Flue Overture) – Mozart (Piano Concerto No 20) – Richard Strauss (Death and Transfiguration) – Wagner (Die Meistersinger Suite)
