World premiere with the Philadelphia Orchestra to launch 2018

Pablo Heras-Casado makes his greatly anticipated return to lead the Philadelphia Orchestra on January 5 & 6, in his first performances of the new year. The programme includes the world premiere of American composer Samuel Jones’ Flute Concerto with soloist (and the Orchestra’s principal flutist) Jeffrey Khaner, bookended with Schubert’s Overture to Rosamunde and Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 73. The Friday night audience is also invited to remain in the hall for a Postlude performance featuring artists from the orchestra performing Schubert’s String Quartet No. 13 in A minor, D. 804.

Enjoy an audio interview here with Mr. Heras-Casado on Philadelphia’s classical station WRTI and a PhilOrch blog feature, both published before his debut with the orchestra in 2016.
