Award-winning composer Jimmy López is considered "one of the most interesting young composers anywhere today" (Chicago Sun-Times). Miguel Harth-Bedoya leads the Norwegian Radio Orchestra in América Salvaje, Synesthésie, Perú Negro, and Lord of the Air -a cello concerto feturing Jesús Castro-Balbi. All four orchestral works included here are being commercially released for the first time.
Jimmy López's "Incubus III", for clarinet, percussion and electronics has been commercially released as part of a three-volume series that includes a selection of works from the 2009 Donaueschingen Contemporary Music Festival. Incubus III (tracks 6 to 11) was produced in cooperation with the SWR Experimental Studio Freiburg.
Now you can listen to Jimmy López's critically acclaimed "Fiesta!" in its world premiere recording by Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. "Fiesta!" is included in INTI (tracks 10 to 13).
MUSUQ PERU (or "New Peru" in Quechua), is a collection of four compositions by Jimmy López. Jimmy's music honors his Latin-American heritage while at the same time reflecting the multiculturalism and perpetual motion that shape modern life. All four works on this CD are world premiere recordings.
