Spanish oboist Ramón Ortega Quero — aka Ramon Ortega — will be the next Principal Oboe of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

He will take over the position vacated by Ariana Ghez earlier this year.

The native of Granada is currently Principal Oboe of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (Mariss Jansons, Principal Conductor) and a member of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (Daniel Barenboim, founder and conductor). He has regularly appeared as a soloist and chamber musician in concerts throughout Europe, including performances of the Strauss Oboe Concerto, Marceau de Salon by Johan Wenzel Kalliwoda, and the world premiere of Legacy, an oboe concerto by Oscar Navarro in both symphony orchestra version and wind band arrangement.
