Over the course of the year 2004 there have been numerous performances of Jesús Rueda's
works, several of which merit special mention. Last May James MacMillan
conducted the Spanish Radio and Television (RTVE) Orchestra in a performance of Rueda's 1st Symphonies
and 2nd Symphonie.
The prestigious Arditti String Quartet also honoured him with a concert consisting entirely of his quartets in September at the Alicante Contemporary Music Festival. Finally, the Cadaqués Orchestra
, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda
, performed his work Elephant Skin
during their tour of Spain this past October. The main concert was held at the Madrid Auditorio as part of the Ibermúsica concert season.
