Following a massive search for Lawrence Leighton Smith’s replacement as music director, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic has selected Josep Caballé-Domenech. You’ll remember that Caballé-Domenech was a mid-process addition to the field of five finalists when he was in town filling in for Maestro Smith. Up to this point, the Barcelona native Caballé-Domenech has maintained his independence serving as guest conductor to many orchestras throughout Europe. In this interview, learn what it was about Colorado Springs and the Philharmonic that made Caballé-Domenech decide to settle down and accept a permanent position here.

    The meeting of orchestra and MD here is GREAT news for music in Springs1 The other candidates were all fine, with some being better at some things than others.

    But what Maestro Caballe brings to concerts is rare. He combines clarity of interpretation, musicality, clean technique, excellent rapport with musicians and audience. And the concerts have been – by far – the best concerts I’ve seen in Springs, bar none. He’s bringing the CSP to new limits. And it’s invigorating!
