SWR Symphonieorchester

Pablo Heras-Casado, Conductor

Description Program Artists

Wagner’s ecstatic harmonies, Stravinsky’s electrifying rhythms, the brilliant instrumentation of Ravel: after several concerts at this festival dedicated to the music of Messiaen, the SWR Symphonieorchester under young Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado will now be presenting the French composer’s musical idols. A dazzling roller coaster of different aesthetics, sounds, and emotions – featuring Ravel’s jazzy Piano Concerto as the centerpiece, whose attractive solo part will be performed by Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili.
