Adolfo Gutiérrez Arenas makes his USA concerto debut with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra

2 February 2015

Adolfo Gutiérrez Arenas, one of our recent signings at Polyarts, made his USA concerto debut with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and Miguel Harth-Bedoya at concerts on 30, 31 January and 1 February.

Gutiérrez performed Édouard Lalo’s Cello Concerto, and the concert also featured Weber’s Overture to Der Freischütz, and Schumann’s Symphony No.2.

Following the concerts, Frontrow Reviews noted, "While the Lalo Concerto showed off Arenas’ romantic virtuoso, his encore, the Sarabande from J.S. Bach’s Suite No.5 in C minor, revealed his artistry, as he eased into the hypnotic loneliness of that profound musical miniatura".

Winner of the Ravel Prize, recent career highlights for Gutiérrez include engagements with the London Symphony Orchestra and Edward Gardner, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and with the Orquesta Nacional de España under Ton Koopman.

Future engagements include performances with the Orquesta Nacional Sinfónica de Colombia, the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski, and an invitation from Kent Nagano and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal.
