Concerts with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

In his final engagement of 2018, Pablo Heras-Casado travels to the Middle East for concerts with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and award-winning pianist, Syzmon Nehring. Heras-Casado leads the IPO in two programs over 11 days in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa.

Beginning on November 3-13, the first program includes Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Syzmon Nehring; and Mahler’s fifth symphony, a transformative and emotional work, famous for its ethereal Adagietto section in the fourth movement. The second program features both suites from de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat, a ballet originally based on his pantomime called El corregidor y la molinera; as well as Ravel’s Boléro. More information and tickets are available via Pablo’s Concerts.

San Francisco Classical Voice applauded Heras-Casado and the San Francisco Symphony in their recent performance of Boléro:

“After that excitement, Ravel’s iconic Boléro opened with legendary restraint. This piece has a snare drum that plays the same bolero rhythm throughout, and on Saturday, the drummer stood center stage, close to Heras-Casado. Starting with the solo flute, the musicians handed off this piece’s theme, which is as elusive as it is unforgettable. Like a soldier marching toward an inexorable, deadly fate, the piece ultimately gave way to a fiery flourish of an ending. The audience gladly sustained its applause while Heras-Casado acknowledged the contribution of every soloist.”

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.
