The Argentine-born composer and conductor Eduardo Alonso-Crespo was trained at the School of Musical Arts of the National University of Tucumán in Argentina, where he also received his Civil Engineering degree. He later moved to the United States with a Fulbright Grant and obtained his Master’s Degree in Conducting at Carnegie Mellon University, after studying with Lukas Foss, Leonardo Balada and Samuel Jones. Further training included seminars and workshops with Max Rudolf, Gunther Schuller and Henry Holt. His compositions have been widely heard throughout Europe and the Americas, winning many awards from Argentine, Spanish and Italian institutions. Seasonal differences have allowed him to serve as Music Director of the Tucumán Symphony Orchestra in Argentina and Music Director of the Carnegie Mellon Contemporary Ensemble in the United States for twelve years, coupled with an intensive schedule as guest conductor, with engagements with most of the Argentine orchestras as well as orchestras and ensembles in Chile, Mexico, the United States, Portugal and France. In 1998 he made his début at the prestigious Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires with a much acclaimed performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 4. Eduardo Alonso-Crespo currently serves as Composer in Residence and Principal Guest Conductor of the Salta Symphony Orchestra in Argentina, and in the faculty of the School of Music at Carnegie Mellon University in the United States of America.
