Chicago Symphony Orchestra reviews: A thunderous homecoming in all-Russian program

“The wintry Scherzo went with apt energy and bustle, Heras-Casado bringing balletic lift to the waltz-like trio theme. The conductor patiently charted the final movement, giving ample breathing room to the basses in the lugubrious opening bars, and ratcheting up each appearance of the insistent main theme to the triumphant coda.”

“Lo más evidente es que su versión no se adueña de nada y vive de lo propio. Desconfía del mito, de la profundidad y recorre superficies. La partitura es antes un camino que se transita que una exploración de fondo. «El oro del Rin» suena nuevo, reformado, candente y eficazmente plegado a la idiosincrasia escénica.”
