Notes & Reviews:

Award-winning composer Jimmy López was recently hailed by The Chicago Sun-Times as, "one of the most interesting young composers working anywhere today." On this exciting release from harmonia mundi, Miguel Harth-Bedoya leads the Norwegian Radio Orchestra in América Salvaje, Synesthésie, Perú Negro and Lord of the Air - a 2012 cello concerto featuring Jesús Castro-Balbi. All four orchestral works included here are being commercially released for the first time.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2015
Committed playing by Jes·s Castro-Balbi, and unarguably idiomatic response from the Norwegian Radio Orchestra... a disc which seems sure to raise L=pez's profile - and deservedly so.

The Classical Reviewer, 18th August 2015
L=pez is a fine composer who brings the influences of his native Peru to his own unique style producing music of imagination and brilliance. The Norwegian Radio Orchestra with their Chief Conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya provide brilliantly played performances. The recording is excellent and there are authoritative and informative notes from the composer.

The Observer, 9th August 2015
Virile, noisy and rhythmic, tonal and modal, the music of Peru's Jimmy L=pez (b.1978) is widely known in America but less so to audiences here...These orchestral works show the influence of Afro-Peruvian music, in the pulsating Per· Negro especially, but L=pez is also an honorary European, having studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.

America Record Guide, November/December 2015

America Record Guide, November/December 2015
The four works recorded here all have extramusical topics... It's an exciting fantasy on the conductor's name, translated into musical pitches... it's a thriller sure to elicit enthusiastic bravos.
