Conductor Pablo Heras-Casado talks about preparing new music
Pablo Heras-Casado enjoys an unusually varied conducting career – encompassing the great symphonic and operatic repertoire, historically-informed performance and cutting-edge contemporary scores – and has already developed a special rapport with a number of soloists, orchestras and opera houses. He has had appearances with orchestras such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, Staatskapelle Berlin, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Boston Symphony Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra. In 2010 he performed for the first time at New York's Mostly Mozart Festival, while 2012 marked his debut at the Salzburger Festspiele. In 2013-14, Harmonia Mundi will release Mr. Heras-Casado's recording of Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 2, Lobgesang, with Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, in addition to a disc featuring Freiburger Barockorchester in Schubert's Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4.
