One of Ramón Ortega Quero’s finest hours was winning First Prize at the ARD Music Competition held in Munich in September 2007.
Since Spring 2008, he is also Principal Oboe of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under its Principal Conductor Mariss Jansons and is working with worldknown conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Herbert Blomstedt, Sir Colin Davies, John Eliot Gardiner, Daniel Barenboim, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Bernhard Haitink.

Performance highlights in season 2015/16 included his debut at Carnegie Hall New York, in 2016/17 the oboist came back to the Konzerthausorchester Berlin conducted by Ivan Fischer and played concerts in Edinburgh and Glasgow with the Scottish Chamber orchestra under conductor Robin Ticciati. He was also reinvited by the Munich Chamber orchestra and the Kammerakademie Potsdam. Furthermore he’ll travel to Asia for concerts with the Taiwan National Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.
