Manuel Hernández-Silva returns to the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires to lead once again the Philharmonic Orchestra with a program that includes Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43 and Concerto for piano and orchestra No. 2 in B flat major, Op. 19, by Beethoven, and Symphony No. 6 in C major, D. 589 by Franz Schubert. The concert, the tenth of the subscription series, will take place on July 8, 2022 at 8:00 p.m. and will feature the Latvian pianist Arta Arnicane. Hernández-Silva made his debut at the Teatro Colón in June 2019 and his stay was extended for a week to replace another director who canceled his commitment, for which he directed two consecutive subscription programs. The excellent public and critical reception of his presentation at the Buenos Aires Coliseum resulted in a re-invitation for August 2021 that had to be canceled for reasons related to COVID-19 and that has finally been recovered.
Hernández-Silva has conducted orchestras such as the Wienner Symphoniker, WDR Rundfunkorchester, Rheinische Philharmonie, Orchester National Bordeaux-Aquitaine, São Paulo State Orchestra, Wuppertal Symphony, Israel Symphony, Prague Radio Symphony, Janacek Philharmonic, Nord Czech Philharmonic, Olomouc Philharmonic, Biel Symphony Orchestra, Mulhouse Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic, Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic, Hradec Králové Philharmonic, National Symphony of Mexico, Puerto Rico Symphony, Buenos Aires Philharmonic, National Symphony of Chile, Venezuela Symphony, Caracas Symphony or the Simón Bolívar Orchestra .
