“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

Seen and Heard International
All three works on the programme for this concert were composed in the first two decades of the twentieth century. Spanish conductor, Pablo Heras-Casado, joined forces with his fellow Spaniard, pianist Javier Perianes to give us the sights, sounds and colours of their homeland in the first half. The second half provided an opportunity to hear Stravinsky’s full ballet score of The Firebird dating from 1910.
Ravel’s Alborado del gracioso (The Jester’s Morning Song) began life as one of the movements in his piano suite Miroirs. The work is famous for its rapid-fire repeated notes and brilliant glissandi and has a distinct Spanish flavour with its Galician rhythms and evocation of guitars and castanets. Ravel wrote the orchestral version in 1918 and it received a rip-roaring performance from Heras-Casado and the Philharmonia …

“Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado planned a first half that would evoke his homeland, starting with Ravel, the Frenchman who depicted Spain as vividly as anybody. His Alborada del gracioso, played with bold colours, was paired with Falla’s Noches en los jardines de España, Javier Perianes the idiomatic solo pianist. It might seem a big leap to the Russian fantasy of Stravinsky’s The Firebird, but the near-impressionist soundworld is only a step away. Heras-Casado performed the ballet complete and with its luxuriously huge orchestration. The Philharmonia was on top form, first horn notably distinguished.”
