We are overjoyed that Mexico has lent to us two of her most treasured artists and brothers, Manuel and Adolfo Ramos!
Violinist Manuel Ramos serves as the official Performing Artist-in-Residence for the country of Mexico. This great honor and position are given as a lifetime appointment. In that role, Maestro Ramos takes musical inspiration and education throughout Mexico.
No stranger to the rest of the Americas, Ramos has played great halls from Canada to Argentina, Carnegie Hall among them. From Bach to Stravinsky, from the melodies of his native Mexico to the virtuoso showpieces of Paganini, Manuel Ramos receives international acclaim for his interpretations of an uncommonly diverse library of compositions.
"...provocative and warmly communicative, rhapsodic." — The Washington Post
“...he’s practically guaranteed to deliver a performance not just technically brilliant but also intelligent, insightful, and sparkling with personality.” — St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Cellist Adolfo Ramos has forged a highly productive career filled with acclaim for his live performances, recordings, and for his work as a pedagogue. He has been a featured soloist and teacher throughout the world including in the Americas, Europe and China.
Senor Ramos' performance duties include his role as Principal Cellist for the Philharmonic of Mexico City. He has held professorships at the Mexican State Conservatory of Music and at The Rocky Mountain Conservatory, among others.
Maestros Manuel and Adolfo Ramos, both, are members of the prestigious Concertistas de Bellas Artes collective which is dedicated to the finest performance of chamber music.
