Percussion – Conductor – Composer
Johannes Fischer’s incredible lightness of touch, his musical joy and his sensitivity prove that managing an enormous range of percussion instruments has little to do with pure muscle power. He is a “percussion magician” (Berliner Morgenpost) – an incessant explorer and mesmerising creator of new acoustic experiences. With infallible technique and his unique grasp for the flow of the music he takes his listeners on a discovery trip into new sound worlds.
He is an internationally sought-after soloist and a passionate chamber musician who covers the full spectrum of percussion playing – from solo recitals to performances with orchestras. In addition, he works as a composer, conductor and percussion professor in Luebeck.
“[He] does not just make music, he is music. (…) incomparable, memorable moments.” — DAS ORCHESTER
“It was simply overwhelming how magnificently Johannes Fischer played. (..) The 26-year-old made music with a pleasure and an agility that made even watching a real enjoyment.” — SUEDDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG
