Irene Ortiz approaches her dedication to music in a multidisciplinary way: as a performer, educator, and bassoon luthier.
She collaborates with various symphonic orchestras and professional chamber groups in Spain and Germany: Orchestra of the Community of Madrid, RTVE Orchestra, Cadaqués Orchestra, Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Moonwinds, Andrés Segovia Chamber Orchestra, Ars Fagott (educational duo), Cadaqués Orchestra, Spanish Chamber Orchestra, Orquestra del Vallès, Camerata XXI, Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville, Barcelona National Orchestra of Catalonia, Granada Orchestra, Córdoba Orchestra, Orchestra of the Palau de Les Arts, Deutsche Kammerphilarmonie Bremen, Musica Assoluta (Hannover), among others.
In the Bassoon Atelier, she works as a luthier, contributing to the improvement and maintenance of the instruments for bassoon students and professionals.
The Atelier is located in Madrid, in the town of Paracuellos del Jarama, just 10 minutes from Madrid Barajas Airport.
The Moosmann instruments I have in stock at the Bassoon Atelier are selected by me at the factory in Waiblingen (Germany) after careful testing. Similarly, I select the bocals that, in my professional opinion, best match each instrument. Once they arrive in Madrid, I carry out the final adjustments that I consider necessary to further enhance the sound quality provided by the Moosmann bassoons.
Clients interested in trying out these instruments can visit the Atelier by appointment and test them for up to 5 hours in a room set up for that purpose, and I can offer advice on any questions that might arise. If they decide to purchase, I will customize the adjustments further if the client requests it at no additional cost.
Instruments purchased at the Bassoon Atelier will receive a discount on their next full general revision, and I will handle any modifications needed within six months of their purchase.
