hr-sinfonieorchester and Sol Gabetta at the Alte Oper

“Pablo Heras-Casado spiegelte mit dem hervorragend disponierten hr-sinfonieorchester den sarkastischen Gehalt, die neo-expressionistische Gesamtpracht des begleitenden Instrumentalparts auf vorzügliche Weise wieder. Punktuell detailliert, keineswegs nüchtern referiert sondern dynamisch ausmusiziert begleitete das klangvoll und prägnant aufspielende Orchester die Solistin.”

Brahms and Berlioz with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra

“Gripping from start to finish: That was Thursday night’s Dallas Symphony Orchestra concert. One of the most impressive guest conductors in the 2017-18 season, the Spaniard Pablo Heras-Casado was back on the podium for a hefty program of the Brahms Violin Concerto and the Berlioz Symphonie fantastique.
