    In March 2014, Israeli conductor Asher Fisch becomes Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth.

A seasoned conductor in both the operatic and symphonic worlds, and a frequent guest to the great orchestras and the most renowned opera houses, his appointment to WASO is Fisch's first chief artistic position with a symphony orchestra.

He is known best for his interpretative command of core German and Italian repertoire of the Romantic and post-Romantic era, in particular Wagner, Brahms, Strauss, and Verdi. He will be conducting Brahms, Liszt and Wagner featuring pianist Garrick Ohlsson on Sunday afternoon here at Tanglewood.
