French Masterworks with the Dallas Symphony 

From October 19-22, Pablo Heras-Casado conducts a sparkling programme of French selections with the Dallas Symphony, along with guest soloist and frequent collaborator Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Of a previous concert with Mr. Heras-Casado, Mr. Thibaudet, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mark Swed of the LA Times proclaimed: “Heras-Casado surrounded Thibaudet’s familiarly crystalline style in an orchestral setting of clean modernity.”

Each concert will open with Debussy’s evocative tone poem La Mer, followed by Ravel’s intense and intriguing Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, with Mr. Thibaudet as soloist. Debussy’s Gigues & Rondes de Printemps (from Images) and Ravel’s shimmering Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2 close out the richly varied programme, part of the Symphony’s Texas Instruments Classical Series. Tickets and additional details can be found via

Pablo Heras-Casado is the Principal Guest Conductor of Teatro Real, Madrid, Director of the Granada Festival, Conductor Laureate of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, artist of harmonia mundi & Deutsche Grammophon, also records for Decca Classics and Sony Classical, and is Global Ambassador of Ayuda en Acción.
