Award-winning composer Jimmy López Bellido has been described as "one of the most interesting young composers anywhere today" (Chicago Sun-Times). His works have been performed by leading orchestras around the world and his music has been heard in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Gewandhaus Lepzig, Kennedy Center, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Konzerthaus Berlin. As part of the Renée Fleming initiative, the Lyric Opera of Chicago commissioned him a full-length opera based on the bestselling novel "Bel Canto". The world premiere took place on December 2015 to wide critical acclaim and was recently broadcast U.S. nationwide on PBS’ Great Performances. He is currently the Houston Symphony's Composer-in-Residence through the 2019-2020 season. A new album with Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra is being released in the summer of 2019 on MSR Classics. Mr. López is published by Filarmonika Music Publishing.
