Twenty-eight-year-old French pianist David Fray makes his Hollywood Bowl debut in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, Tuesday and Thursday, July 27 and 29, at 8 p.m. The all-Beethoven program for both evenings, led by 32-year-old conductor Spanish Pablo Heras-Casado, also in his Hollywood Bowl debut, includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica.”
David Fray, noted for his impressive musicality and technique as well as his inventive and sensitive interpretations, received the Jury Award “Newcomer of the Year 2008” from BBC Magazine for his Bach/Boulez CD. He was also awarded by the German Recording Academy for the second time with an ECHO Classic 2009 in the category “Instrumentalist of the Year – Piano” for his interpretation of Bach concerti with the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
Pablo Heras-Casado enjoys a multi-faceted conducting career of unusual breadth and variety. This summer he also makes debuts at New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival and with the Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom Music Festival. In the 2010/11 season he appears for the first time with the San Francisco and Seattle Symphonies, and the Canadian Opera Company with Nixon in China. European debuts include Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra at the Concertgebouw, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Staatsoper Berlin, Teatro Real Madrid (Mahagonny) and La Monnaie in Brussels (Toshio Hosokawa’s Matsukaze).
