       One of the most often performed Argentine composers of today, Eduardo Alonso-Crespo is the author of six symphonies, seventeen concertos, two operas, two ballets, chamber music and choral music - in addition to other orchestral works -, a production that earned him a total of eighteen national and international awards and distinctions. His music has been performed by orchestras and ensembles from France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Ukraine, Germany, Finland, the United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Japan, Israel, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, Bolivia and Argentina, and in venues as prestigious as the Colón Theater in Buenos Aires, the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Church of La Madelaine in Paris, the Great Hall of Doelen in Rotterdam, the Teresa Carreño Theater in Caracas, the La Fenice Theater in Venice and the Royal Palace of Queluz in Lisbon.

       Eduardo Alonso-Crespo graduated from the School of Musical Arts of the National University of Tucumán in Argentina, obtaining at that same university the title of civil engineer. Through a Fulbright postgraduate scholarship, he studied at Carnegie Mellon University in the United States, where he received a Master's degree in Orchestral and Choral Conducting, after training with teachers Lukas Foss, Leonardo Balada and Samuel Jones. As a teacher Alonso-Crespo served at Carnegie Mellon University in the USA for eighteen years.

 

       As a conductor he served for twelve years as Principal Conductor of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tucumán in Argentina, simultaneously acting as Musical Director of the Carnegie Mellon Contemporary Ensemble in the USA and maintaining an intense activity as a guest conductor in Argentina and abroad. He was a fundamental architect in the creation of the Salta Symphony Orchestra in Argentina, an organization of which he was Principal Guest Conductor and Resident Composer. His guest conductor appearances include symphonic organizations from the United States, France, Portugal, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina. In his home country he has performed at the head of the Córdoba, Rosario, Entre Ríos, Tucumán, San Juan, Mendoza and Salta Symphony Orchestras, as well as the National Orchestra of Argentine Music and the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra, maiking his debut at the Teatro Colón conducting an acclaimed version of Gustav Mahler's Fourth Symphony in 1998. His most recent activities as a conductor include the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville, Spain, which Alonso-Crespo directed for the British record label Naxos.
