Michael Rath Trombones are delighted to announce that Jose Luis Moreno Miras has joined the Rath Team
“If I had to choose a word that would define my Michael Rath Trombones, it would be without a doubt, EASE. They are very responsive and I feel the harmonics are very close together so it’s very easy for me to move through the register. This ease also allows me to change the colour of the sound as I need it and also increases my stamina. I’ve never had such a fast slides!” Jose Luis Moreno Miras, Rath Trombone Artist.
Jose was born in Níjar, Spain. Having studied trombone at Conservatorio Superior de Música Victoria Eugenia of Granada he completed his training at the Barenboim-Said Foundation Orchestral Academy in Seville with Martin Rehinhart (Staatskapelle Berlin), Brass Academy Alicante with Ricardo Casero (Palau de les Arts Orchestra), Erik Hainzl (Tonkünstler Orchester), Otmar Gaiswinkler (Wiener Symphoniker), Aula de Trombón with Carlos Gil (Jose Iturbi Conservatory) and Indalecio Bonet (Spanish Brass – Luur Metalls).
He had ambitions to further his education and perfect his professional skills. This led him to Belgium, where he successfully completed his Master’s studies at Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels with Mr. Bart van Nieuwenhuyze from the Antwerpen Symphony Orchestra.
He then returned to Spain where he started a freelance career focusing on teaching, orchestral playing and chamber music.
He has been a member of Almería Symphony Orchestra for ten years (2009-2019). His orchestral experience includes concerts with other Spanish orchestras such as the Córdoba Symphony Orchestra, Granada Symphony Orchestra or The Philharmonic Orchestra of Andalucía. He has also played with the Spanish National Ballet, Víctor Ullate Ballet Company and La Fura dels Baus theater company.
In addition, he has collaborated with many European orchestras such as Orchestra Les Musiciens d’Europe, Craiova Symphony Orchestra, New Symphony Orchestra of Lisbon, Zoltan Kodaly World Youth Orchestra and several Belgian orchestras such as the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra.
He has been fortunate to work with many great conductors, among which can be highlighted Sigiswald Kuijken, Yoav Talmi, Tamás Vásáry, Arturo Tamayo and Gavin Greenaway.
In addition to his work in orchestras, Jose greatly enjoys performing chamber music and is one of the founding members of the Indalbone Quartet and the brass quintet Bell Brass.
Currently, Jose pursues an active artistic career, while holding a position as professor at Conservatorio Superior de Música Rafael Orozco of Córdoba (Spain).
