He then returns to the Chicago Symphony for a concert at the Ravinia Festival, followed by a production of Don Giovanni at the Gstaad Menuhin Festival with Erwin Schrott singing the title role.
In September Heras-Casado returns to the Lucerne Festival, with whom he enjoys a close relationship — he is a laureate of the 2007 Lucerne Festival conductors’ forum and in 2013 co-directed the Festival’s Academy at the invitation of Pierre Boulez. This year, he conducts the Academy’s closing concert in a programme of Bartók, Szymanowski and Varèse, and is joined by Isabelle Faust.
To conclude the festival season, Heras-Casado returns to the US for the closing concert of Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Hollywood Bowl, performing Gershwin’s Concerto in F (with Jean-Yves Thibaudet as the soloist) and Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique. Heras-Casado last conducted the orchestra in 2013, when they performed Peter Eötvös’ Violin Concerto and Angels in America, among other works.
