Jorge Luis Prats

BIOGRAPHY

Since May 2007, when Jorge Luis Prats gave his first recital at the Miami International Piano Festival, his career has undergone a dramatic ascent. His debut recitals at the prestigious “Meister Pianisten” series at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam were received with standing ovations. In 2010 he returned to the same series for the third time, an honor uniquely reserved for Alfred Brendel and Grigory Sokolov previously.

Jorge Luis has toured Europe, Latin America, China, Japan and Korea, playing with some of the World’s leading orchestra, including Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and BBC Symphony Orchestra in London, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Wiener Symphoniker, Berlin State Opera Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Lamoureux Orchestre, Philharmonique de Liege, Philharmonique de Montecarlo, Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire, Orquestre Nationale de Lyon, Prague Philharmonia, Dallas Symphony, Pensacola Symphony, Mexico City Philharmonic, OFUNAM, Bogotá Philharmonic, Simón Bolívar Symphony, and most of the major orchestras in Spain: Spanish National Orchestra, Barcelona Symphony, Galicia Symphony, Orchestra of Valencia, Tenerife Symphony, Oviedo Filarmonia, etc.

From 1985 to 2002, he was the Artistic Director of the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba, with which he made several tours in Spain and Latin America.
