On March 10, Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the RTVE Symphony Orchestra and Choir at the National Music Auditorium in an extraordinary concert in tribute to the victims of terrorism.

“A luminous and urgent performance, deftly balancing the shifts from moody ruminations to bouts of exuberance.... Heras-Casado is the thinking person’s idea of a hotshot young conductor.” - The New York Times

RTVE: Atención obras – ‘La Valquiria’ de Richard Wagner

RTVE

Al Teatro Real de Madrid llega ‘El anillo de Nibelungo’, la segunda parte de la ópera de Richard Wagner ‘La Valquiria’, que es, además, el título más popular de la serie. El programa ha charlado con Pablo Heras-Casado, al frente de la dirección musical de esta obra calificada como “desafío de dimensiones épicas”.

Die Walküre at Teatro Real

“El sueño de Wagner es un orgasmo musical que debe ser una de las experiencias terrenales que más cerca del cielo pueden situar al ser humano. Sobre todo si suena como Pablo Heras-Casado consigue hacer sonar a la Sinfónica de Madrid. Una función redonda que consigue que el público se vuelque con su orquesta, nuestra orquesta, desde el primer y maravilloso acto. Y ya hasta el final. Casi cuatro horas de música sublime que, en este caso, llevan a una experiencia cuasi religiosa. El Real parecía la ópera de Múnich, donde de escucha a Wagner con un respeto que impone.”

Shangay

“Hay que empezar por el buen trabajo de Pablo Heras-Casado, que logró algunos instantes de excelente plasmación sonora, así todo el desarrollo del segundo cuadro del segundo acto, con un análisis detallado y adecuadamente labrado del extenso dúo Brünnhilde-Siegmund, donde los planos quedaron bien reproducidos y la prestación orquestal brilló a buen nivel. Como lo hizo en la parte final del dúo de cierre y en el remate de la ópera.”

La Razón

“But what made this Walküre so memorable was Pablo Heras-Casado’s conducting and the orchestral playing. He was the undoubted hero of the hour, leading an impassioned, fleet account of this miraculous score, never allowing tension to sag. Orchestral textures were finally balanced, and he was rewarded with exceptional playing, particularly from the brass and woodwind sections, all underpinned by luminous strings. Tempi were judiciously chosen, and there was a natural ebb and flow to the performance – in fact this was one of the finest performances of this work we’ve heard live in the theatre, whetting the appetite for the remaining two operas.”

Music Ohm

“Pablo Heras-Casado gave a superb reading of the opera, and the Teatro Real orchestra once again demonstrated their unquestionable talent.”
