Ben makes his second debut of the month on 21 December, with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse at the Halle aux Grains.

Ben conducted Beethoven Symphony No.2 and is joined by the eminent French pianist François-René Duchable for Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1.

The concert was well received and Ben led “ the evening masterfully. The aerial theme of Larghettopermet highlights the timbre of the woods that Ben Gernon gives great care to, conducting strictly yet sensitively.” Bachtrack, December 2017
