He returns to Carnegie Hall and the Caramoor Festival with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and conducts Beethoven's 9th Symphony at the New Years concerts of Staatskapelle Berlin. Other highlights include return performances with the San Francisco Symphony, Münchner Philharmoniker, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Ensemble Intercontemporain. He also goes on tour with Freiburger Barockorchester and appears in a series of performances with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra.
In September 2013, Harmonia Mundi releases Heras-Casado's recording of Schubert's Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 with Freiburger Barockorchester. A second album, featuring Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 2, Lobgesang, follows in March 2014, while Deutsche Grammophon’s Archiv Produktion – which recently welcomed Heras-Casado as an “Archiv Ambassador” – has announced an album celebrating legendary castrato singer Farinelli. Fall 2013 also sees the release of a disc featuring Placido Domingo in baritone arias by Giuseppe Verdi, accompanied by Heras-Casado and Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana.
Heras-Casado is the holder of the Medalla de Honor of the Rodriguez Acosta Foundation, and in February 2012 was awarded with the Golden Medal of Merit by the Council of Granada, his hometown, of which he is also an Honorary Ambassador. His 2011 DVD recording of Kurt Weill’s Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny from Teatro Real received the Diapason d'Or.
