"The Spanish pianist of his generation"
Hoja del Lunes de Madrid

José Ramón Méndez’s career gained international recognition when he performed Liszt's first piano concerto under the direction of Sergiu Comissiona at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Since then, he has concertized extensively in his native Spain, the United States, Italy, England, Portugal, Holland, and Japan to great acclaim. Recent performance highlights include Chopin's first piano concerto with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain with the Nittany Valley Symphony. As a chamber musician, Méndez has collaborated with such distinguished artists as Karl Leister, Itzhak Perlman, Michael Tree, Pascual Martinez-Nieto, and Pinchas Zukerman. With his poetry, intellect, and masterful technique, he has been praised by critics and celebrated by audiences around the world.
