Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

On his first recording for harmonia mundi, conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, whose conducting career encompasses the great symphonic and operatic repertoire, historically informed performance and cutting-edge contemporary scores, offers a fresh look at the symphonies of Franz Schubert. Leading the period-instrument Freiburger Barockorchester, Heras-Casado pairs the light hearted Symphony No.3 of 1815, which ends with a Rossinian tarantella, with the darker Symphony No.4, written one year later and looking more towards Beethoven. Echoing the fourth symphony's subtitle, it is indeed tragic that this symphony, like all his others, was never played in public in the composer's lifetime. Principal Conductor of the Orchestra of St Luke’s since 2012, Heras-Casado makes his débuts with the Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic in in the 2013/14 season.

The Times, 30th August 2013
These spirited period-instruments performances of Schubert's Third and Fourth Symphonies make one wonder anew why they are heard so rarely. The rising Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra strike an ideal balance between sinuous energy and surging Romantic spirit.
