Last November 2015 Raul Prieto Ramirez offered his first concert at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Concert Hall -The Disney Hall- with the impressive Rosales organ. The poster for that weekend included both Raul Prieto Ramirez to perform on the organ and Yuja Wang to perform on the piano. Many audience members attended both concerts.
The Hall was packed to listen Raul's debut in one of the most emblematic instruments in the world, and the audience received him on stage cheering before he had already played a single note. The excitement was on the air.
Before the concert, Raul was interview during a pre-concert talk with Thomas Neenan that you can listen here below:
The first outdoor concert ever in the Pyrenees mountains was last August 10th in the Andorra Valley. The concert was organized by the Andorra Organ&nd Festival. The event was introduced to press and media at the Spanish Consulate in Andorra.
The location selected for the concert was a spectacular square right in the middle of the Andorra Valley, surrounded by impressive mountains, with the Casa de la Vall from 1580 as backstage
The concert included works by Buxtehude, Bach, Liszt, Widor, Wagner and Saint-Saens. The valley served as a resounding hall for works like the Meistersinger Overture or Mephisto Waltz
Before the concert the instrument was stored in a State building, the flight cases and the van normally used for the transportation can be seen here below
The concert was a great success. Press coverage was wide and enthusiastic
