In his Mas­ter­class Jo­han­nes Fi­scher would like to talk about his ex­pe­ri­en­ces and ideas about the per­cus­sion com­po­si­ti­ons of Ian­nis Xe­n­a­kis, on the oc­ca­sion of his hund­redth bir­th­day. He has been working with Xe­n­a­kis’ works for over 20 ye­ars now and they are among the most per­for­med in his re­per­toire. There are still pos­si­bi­li­ties to read pie­ces like Psap­pha or Re­bonds in a new and in­no­va­tive way and to find ways of in­ter­pre­ta­tion bey­ond the mainstream.

Jo­han­nes Fi­scher is ce­le­bra­ted by the press as the sound ma­gi­cian among per­cus­sio­nists, who tou­ches his au­di­ence with light­ness, im­pul­sive joy of play­ing and sen­si­ti­vity. His ap­proach to mu­sic is from the performer’s point of view, as com­po­ser, im­pro­vi­sing in­stru­men­ta­list, tea­cher and con­duc­tor. In ad­di­tion to his solo ac­ti­vi­ties which have al­ready ta­ken him to ma­jor con­cert halls around the world as well as to nu­me­rous or­che­s­tras and fes­ti­vals, his col­la­bo­ra­tion with musicians

from a wide va­riety of back­grounds is of great im­por­t­ance.
Jo­han­nes Fi­scher has re­cei­ved nu­me­rous awards and scho­l­ar­s­hips which in­clude pri­zes at the Ger­man Mu­sic Com­pe­ti­tion, and 1st prize and four other spe­cial pri­zes at the 56th ARD In­ter­na­tio­nal Mu­sic Com­pe­ti­tion in Mu­nich. In 2009 he was ap­poin­ted as a pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­sity of Mu­sic Lübeck.
