Leticia Moreno performs world premiere of Jimmy López Bellido’s Aurora Violin Concerto with Houston Symphony Orchestra & Orozco Estrada on new Pentatone album
Following Leticia Moreno´s recent release of Peter Eötvös’ DoReMi Concerto, her next recording includes the world premiere of Jimmy López Bellido´s Aurora Violin Concerto dedicated to and premiered by Leticia with Houston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrés Orozco Estrada. The album also includes López Bellido’s Symphony No.2 “Ad Astra”. Aurora is inspired by López Bellido’s years spent in Finland, and particularly the privilege of witnessing the northern lights.
