For this next “Fiddler’s Favorite’s” Episode we are going all the way to Zurich Switzerland to my friend Michael Salm, who graciously agreed to prepare his favorite comfort "Chili con Carne” recipe!
Michael has been serving as Assistant Principal in the Orchestra of the Zurich Opera House since 1998 and has been principal Principal of the Gstaad Festival Orchestra since 2013. From 2013 to 2014 he joined the Staatskapelle Berlin in the same position. From 2005 to 2006 Michael was Concertmaster of the Korean Symphony Orchestra in Seoul, South Korea. As a Guest Principal he performed with renowned orchestras such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, NDR Symphony Orchestra Hamburg, Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Frankfurt City Opera House Orchestra, Camerata Salzburg, Bergen Philharmonic and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
