Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Fleischmann epitomizes the young and aspiring artists of this vibrant city. As the “Viennese Violinist” he has developed a remarkable repertoire. His versatility and passion for chamber music are evident in multiple collaborations with celebrated musicians like Julius Berger, José Gallardo, Eszter Haffner, André Heller, Hyung-ki Joo, Sebastian Knauer, Daniel Müller-Schott, Sophie Pacini, Michael Schade, Torleif Thedéen, the “NWCS – Neue Wiener Concert Schrammeln” and the “Symphoniacs.”

Since his solo debut of the Brahms Violin Concerto at the Wiener Konzerthaus, Fleischmann has been appointed by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as ambassador for the Nasom program. As a chamber musician, he has shared the stage with numerous celebrated artists and performed in famous concert halls like Wiener Musikverein, Wiener Konzerthaus, the great hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, Philharmonie im Gasteig Munich, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Brucknerhaus Linz, Carnegie Hall New York, Suntory Hall Tokio and the Flagey in Brussels.

In 2021, he released his album “Exodus” (Odradek Records), which has since been nominated for the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 2021 and for the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) 2022. He is the founder and artistic director of the master classes and music festival “Althofener Meisterklassen” in Carinthia/Austria which premiered in 2022.

During Fleischmann's musical concert held at the Austrian residence for the partners of the Austrian Embassy Manila, Austrian Ambassador to the Philippines Johann Brieger reiterated his endeavor to further strengthen people-to-people connection between Austria and the Philippines especially in the field of Arts and Culture.

''The New Austrian Sound of Music is a program run by our foreign ministry for 15 years now. It aims to support international performances of promising young talents with the help of a global network of embassies. Cultural projects like these are made possible by our wonderful partners and I am very happy that we have established quite a unique collaboration with the Manila Symphony Orchestra—a longstanding Austrian-Filipino cooperation for nearly 100 years with Austrian conductor and musician Alexander Lippay having been the founder of the Manila Symphony Orchestra in 1926 and we hope to continue this partnership for many more years,” said Ambassador Brieger.

“Dvorak, Mendelssohn, and Brahms” is the first concert of the Manila Symphony Orchestra Concert Series 2023-2024: “In Pursuit of Excellence” and will be held on June 17, 7 p.m. at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City. Tickets are still available via Ticketworld.
