As “a performance of exquisite taste” describes the Spanish newspaper Diario Actual Pablo Heras-Casado’s concert at Granada Festival with Freiburger Barockorchester:
“Pablo Heras’ communication with the orchestra was incredibly fluid and accurate, with the latter reacting to each small stimulus from him, being faithful to the articulation of each motive and maintaining a constant tension.” (Diario Actual, 6 July 2012)
El País comments: “He showed a remarkable degree of evolution in a repertory that always exposes any deficiency. His version of A Midsummer night’s dream was anthological.” (El País, 6 July 2012)
“Step by step, with perseverance, work and, above all, much talent, he has conquered an important summit in the truly tricky world of orchestra conducting,” writes Diario Ideal. “He is a conductor with an extremely acute sense of rhythm, a perfect vision of the timbre possibilities of the orchestra, and he is able to get the maximum performance out of them.” (Diario Ideal, 5 July 2012)
Pablo Heras-Casado just started a close collaboration with the Freiburger Barockorchester. After their succesful debut tour in March they were now guests at Pablo Heras-Casado’s hometown Granada where they also recorded Schubert’s Symphonies No. 3 and 4 for Harmonia Mundi. In August they will be travelling together to Mostly Mozart Festival New York for a concert on 9 August.
