Prof. Jérôme Guichard

Jérôme Guichard was born in Nancy, where he has began his oboe studies before being accepted at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at age of nineteen, first studying with Pierre Pierlot then with Maurice Bourgue.

Laureate of the Yamaha foundation in 1991, he has won the first prize of the International Oboe Competition of Tokyo in the same year, prize which has never been awarded during the previous edition of this contest.

He has been regularly invited by the Orchestra of the Opera Bastille of Paris, the National Orchestra of France, the WDR of Cologne. He has performed concerts with Lorin Maazel, Thierry Boulez, Jeffrey Tate, Semyon Bychkof, Kent Nagano, Kurt Masur and Emmanuel Krivine who has appointed him as a first oboe soloist of the National Orchestra of Lyon in 1997.

He has performed in various festivals, as the Montpellier Radio France Festival, the September of l'Orne, the Orlando Festival (Netherlands) and the Neubourg Castle Season (Germany). He has taken part in several international academies and ha thought during master classes in Tokyo, Minsk, Barcelona and many cities in France (Angers, Marseille).

He teaches at the Ecole Normale de Musique of Paris from 1989 to 1994,
holds the oboe class at the Conservatoire National de Region of Nancy from 1988 to 1998. Since 2009 Mr. Guichard holds a professorship at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique of Lyon.

Ramón Ortega Quero

Born in 1988, one of Ramón Ortega Quero’s finest hours was winning First Prize at the ARD Music Competition held in Munich in September 2007. Following this success, the young artist starts his career on the podiums in Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Basle, and Saint Petersburg, where audiences were eager to hear the brilliant artistry of the Andalusian oboist.

He received solid training from Miguel Quirós early on at the conservatory of his native city of Granada and Gregor Witt, Principal Oboe of Barenboim’s Berliner Staatskapelle, to take the gifted young man under his wing and act as a mentor in his artistic development. Quero became a member of the Andalusian Youth Orchestra as a twelve-year-old. In 2003, the oboist cleared an important hurdle when conductor Daniel Barenboim accepted him as a member of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, an ensemble uniting musicians from Israel, Palestine and other countries in promotion of peace and performs to wide acclaim all over the world.

Since January of 2008, he has also been Principal Oboe of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Or­chestra under its Principal Conductor Mariss Jansons.
