Pablo Heras-Casado, whom The New York Times hails as “the thinking person’s idea of a hotshot young conductor,” returns to the New World Symphony for an evening of luxurious orchestral gems.

Johannes Brahms, the ultimate romantic who once felt paralyzed by Beethoven’s shadow, found immediate success in his Third Symphony, a rich panorama of endless beauty. György Ligeti’s energetic Romanian Concerto channels “the spirit of the village bands” with distant alphorn calls, tantalizing violin solos and a raucous finale. The soaring lushness of Franz Liszt’s famous tone poem Les Préludes is pure indulgence. Themes of love, destiny, war and the countryside bloom as he muses “what is our life but a series of preludes to that unknown song?”

Pablo Heras-Casado, conductor
