Eduardo Raimundo Beltrán | Clarinet

His relationship with music started at an early age. His curious and restless personality guided the path that little by little would take shape and lead him finally to devote himself to music.

Eduardo has recieved a broad education by those who have been his clarinettist of reference, having a really close contact with Jose Cerveró, Jose Vicente Herrera, Joan Enric Lluna and Alessandro Carbonare, with whom he learns, apart from the technique, the great diversity of ideas that are possible in the musical art.  

His restlessness to meet other opinions on musical interpretation, specially the clarinet family, takes him to study the bass clarinet with Antonio Goig and later with Harry Spaarnay. Continuing with his open education, he enters the world of early music by the hand of Loranzo Coppola, who influences his understanding of the communication with the public and the emotions that are transmitted in the music of the classic and romantic period.

His plural and varied education has given him the opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of musicians and ensembles; from those who work with early instruments and classic-romantic repertoire like Ensemble Zefiro, Wind  Ensemble of the Freiburg Barroque Orchestra,  Praeteritum, Mille e Tre. to those who perform contemporary and new pieces with modern instruments like Plural Ensemble, Neopercusion, Alart Quartet, Ensemble Residencias, Mixtour.

A special mention is due to the Clarinet Quartet “Quatre Vents” of which he has been a member for twelve years and won the International music chamber competitions of Montserrat Alavedra, Manresa, Castellterçol, and a third price in Guadamora.

As an orchestral musician he has collaborated with many orchestras and conductors like the Freiburg Barroque Orchestra, Il Giardino Armonico, Europa Galante, Le Cercle de l´harmonie, Spira Mirabilis, Palau de les Arts de Valencia, Cadaques, RTVE, Orquesta de Valencia, Illes Balears, Cordoba. From 2002 to 2006 he has formed part of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid (Teatro Real) and since 2006 has a seat as bass clarinet in the Spanish National Orchestra.

There are two personal projects that stand out beyond all others. Firstly his soloist side as bass clarinet, of special relevance the commission and premier of his two first concerts for bass clarinet and orchestra by Spanish composers: “Fascination was mutal” by Jose Luis Greco and “Of foreign cities”, by Ramón Paús, the latter premiered in the National Auditorium with the Spanish National Orchestra. Secondly, the Trio Musicalis, that brings together the strands to implement everything he has learnt and experienced in his career. It is a genuine musical lab where music is communicated, shared and discovered in the most direct way for a musician: chamber music.
