Lopez has been featured across the globe as recitalist, soloist with orchestra and collaborator. He received critical acclaim for his interpretation of Bach’s Goldberg Variations at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and has performed the complete cycle of Beethoven Piano Concertos in his last two concert seasons. He was invited by the Holland Music Sessions, now one of the top performing arenas for up and coming musicians in Europe, to go on a world tour for which he performed in Paris, London, Cologne, New York’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and in Los Angeles where he was hailed by the L.A. Times for his “…musical perspective, continuity and kaleidoscopic colors.”
