Last week, I heard violinist Joshua Bell, accompanied by the San Francisco Symphony, conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado. I liked this conductor a lot. He seemed to know the music cold, and his eye contact with the players was excellent.
Tonight he directs the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
It turns out that Pablo Heras-Casado, the orchestra as principal conductor, excels equally in music old and new. He joins a celebrated soloist, the cellist Alisa Weilerstein, in a program featuring music by Stravinsky, Shostakovich, and Beethoven.
The program includes the following:
- STRAVINSKY Symphonies of Wind Instruments
- SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No. 2
- BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5

If you do attend, I hope that you enjoy this event, and do let me know how you liked it…
