The Concerto for Violin and Orchestra was released on PENTATONE’s album Aurora & Ad Astra, on which Leticia Moreno, Houston Symphony, and Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada present two world premiere recordings of works by López Bellido. Aurora, for Solo Violin and Orchestra, and Symphony No.2: Ad Astra share a fascination for the stars. Aurora is inspired by López Bellido’s years spent in Finland, and particularly the privilege of witnessing the northern lights.
With this recording, Leticia Moreno consolidates her journey through contemporary repertoire where she has performed works by composers Esa Pekka Salonen, Peter Eötvös, Krzysztof Penderecki, Magnus Lindberg, Fazil Say, Donghoon Shin and Gabriel Prokofiev, leading her to perform around the world with orchestras such as Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Mozarteum Salzburg, Philharmonia, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo amongst others.
Aurora is published by Filarmonika commissioned by the Houston Symphony and Andrés Orozco-Estrada, and dedicated to Leticia Moreno.
