Rau L Prieto RamÃ£ÂRez
From the venue:
"Raul Prieto Ramirez is a colossally talented organist" (The Washington Blade). At age 27, he was named the first organist of Madrid's National Concert Hall. From studies in his native Spain, advanced training in Germany and Russia, and work on interpretation with Marie-Claire Alain and other renowned organists, he commands a wide and deep knowledge of organ repertoire, styles, and schools.
In January 2018, "Raul Prieto Ramirez - San Diego's newly minted Civic Organist - played a sensational opening recital. Musically he confidently touched all the necessary bases...gleefully enjoying putting the Spreckels Organ through its paces.... his counterpoint in Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor sparkled with immaculate articulation, driven by a sure dramatic sense" (SanDiegoStory.com).
