Only Beethoven

"Maestro Ludwig Carrasco, guest conductor for this concert of the first season 2020 of the Aguascalientes Symphony Orchestra did not only an exquisite job, but also very solid and convincing, not only in the symphony. During the concerto he took appropriate care of the soloist and offered him the security of stepping on stable ground provided by a well-conducted orchestra with a firm baton, thus allowing the pianist to perform with complete confidence. That same feeling of security and mastery of the score was found in the interpretation carried out with the Symphony No. 1."

Carrasco conducts work by Swedish composer

"[...] the public responded euphoric and Maestro Carrasco had to return to the stage again. After the intermission, and within the framework of the 250 years aniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), they performed a version of his "Quartet number 11 in F minor, Op. 95, Serioso", rewritten by Gustav Mahler (1860-1911). At the end, a resounding "bravo" came out from between the seats and the audience stood up on their feet. Twice the artistic director had to return to the stage to thank the displays of affection."

Applause for Ludwig Carrasco

"Ludwig Carrasco left the stage of the Metropolitan Theater, the musicians settled back in their seats and the applause made the conductor return, this time not only to receive the recognition of the public, but also that of the members of the orchestra who applauded with their instruments and made the floor of the stage resonate with the pounding of their feet. Carrasco asked the orchestra to stand up to thank the public's generous ovation, but the musicians did not get up, they continued clapping for their conductor, and it was an applause that not only recognized that night’s performance, but for all the work that he did during his tenure[...]."

Le Grand Macabre

"Ligeti’s work [Le Grand Macabre] is indeed a difficult task and the requirements for the orchestra and performers are very high. Luckily, the Eduardo Mata Youth Orchestra of the University, under the musical direction of Ludwig Carrasco, was adequate for this work and he achieved positive results via the control of orchestra, good management of tempi and excellent coordination with the singers."

Music against oblivion

"This work [Marches of grief and anger by Arturo Márquez] had a very successful interpretation, with an outstanding construction of tension, which ends up overflowing, through a good management of nuances and variations of tempi very well commanded by the guest conductor. "
