Jesús Rueda Azcuaga (born in Madrid, 30 May 1961) is a Spanish composer. He won the 2004 National Prize for the global quality of his music, with special recognition to his recently premiered symphonic and chamber compositions, such as his Symphony No. 2 and his String Quartet No. 3.[1] His Symphony No. 3, Viaje imaginario (dedicated to his teacher Francisco Guerrero following his untimely death) and a selection of his piano music, including his two sonatas, were subsequently published by Naxos Records.[2]

Through his career he has evolved from experimental music to a more mainstream style.[3] He is the resident composer of the Cadaqués Orchestra,[4] and a regular juror of the Queen Sofía Prize.
