Johannes Fischer

At the 2007 International ARD Music Competition in Munich, he made a clean sweep of almost all prizes: in addition to the First Prize for Percussion, he was awarded almost all special prizes as well as the audience prize. Many found him to be the outstanding personality of the 2007 competition. Last but not least, German percussionist Johannes Fischer also won the OehmsClassics Special Prize, following which his first CD now appears in the OehmsClassics Debut series. The percussionist and composer – born in 1981 – put together a program of works written between 1973 and 2007 which are key compositions of modern music. In addition, the recording includes the composition nemeton of German composer Matthias Pintscher (* 1971). Written in 2007, this work was commissioned by the ARD as a required piece for all contestants. Fischer caused a sensation with this work, which also brought him the prize for the best interpretation of the commissioned work.
