Ramons Jaffe

Ramons Jaffe


Ramon Jaffé was born in 1962 in the lettischen Riga into a musician family. 1971 emigrierte the family to Israel and 1974 a further mark to Germany. Ramon Jaffé at the age received its first instruction from four years with its father Don Jaffé, which stood for him beyond that up to its diploma and as a signpost/guide to the side. Its special gifts made Ramon possible Jaffé the premature admission to the university. Apart from its studies with David Geringas and Boris Pergamenschikow served it Daniel Schafran and Sandor Végh as its musical examples. It was already the master pupil a special honour to be allowed to do Sandor Végh with its last large appearance as violonists in the large Mozarteum to Salzburg as chamber music partners to the side.

Already early mastered Ramon Jaffé under guidance of these exzellenten artists successfully a set of competitions, among them for example the German music competition and the Casals competition (Budapest). It is not to be pointed from the hand to that competition successes had positive effects on its soloist career already pursued at study times. Since that time innumerable concerts led it into the large houses of Berlin, Amsterdam, Salzburg, Leipzig, Vienna, Munich, London, Hamburg, Cologne and to many further places on all continents.

Parallel to its solo career he dedicates himself besides the chamber music as a member of the Streichtrios Belcanto stringers and the Mendelssohn Trio Berlin. Since that time Ramon Jaffé was 1994 founders and is artistic director/conductor of the chamber music celebration Hopfgarten/Tirol. It informs at the university for music Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden.

Apart from its official tasks its attention two weitern affairs of heart belongs: With Fleming CO concerts Ramon Jaffé appreciates the life's work of his of the 1997 deceased Fleming CO partner, the guitarist Pedro Bacan. And it is to be been also somewhat completely special, the main interpreter and unquestioned Performer of the world premieres of a composer. The "job" no art was too gotten, because the composer is not anybody different than the father Don Jaffé. To fill out it however with dignity, however already. And this constellation is fastidiously for both sides, a composer regularly by its interpreter around order compositions is pressed.
