Pablo Heras-Casado leads the San Francisco Symphony

“Heras-Casado performs with manic energy, sans baton, in an unusual choreographic manner, arms rotating wildly like propellers overhead. Conductors, of course, (Richard Strauss always excepted!) will normally move around on the podium to shape the general flow of melody and could be said to dance with an invisible ball of sound in front of them. It’s the sort of time-honored, time-beating foxtrot we expect. Heras-Casado does more than this. He may be left-handed, I found myself thinking, as I noticed how often he delivered downbeats with either arm, but an unusual thing he does is mimic the music note for note as he cues.

Diario de Sevilla: “Escribir un libro ha sido útil para darme cuenta del esfuerzo del camino”

Diario de Sevilla

Pablo Heras-Casado (Granada, 1977) es uno de los directores de orquesta españoles con más proyección. Su carrera comprende una amplia gama de repertorios. En la actualidad es director principal de la Orchestra of St. Luke’s de Nueva York (desde 2011) y principal director invitado del Teatro Real de Madrid (desde 2014) y del Festival de Música y Danza de Granada. Ahora publica con Espasa A prueba de orquesta, un libro en el que aborda el mundo de la música clásica pero también el suyo propio porque intercala píldoras de su infancia, de sus conciertos internacionales o de su vida familiar.
