I started my musical studies at the Oriol Martorell school in Barcelona. I later on was accepted to the Purcell School of Music. I later became a scholar at the Royal College of Music in London, where I obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I am a very passionate performer of both solo and ensemble repertoire. In these capacities, I have worked with some of the world’s finest conductors and musicians. I have also had the privilege to work with orchestras and ensembles such as the Orquestra de Cadaqués , the Liceu Opera Orchestra, OSCyL, BBCCO, ROH and Ensemble Modern. I have performed in some of the most important venues in Europe including the Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, l’Auditori (Barcelona), Palau de la Música, National Auditorium in Madrid and more recently at Halle aux Grains (Toulouse) During my years as a student and a young professional, I participated in various festivals around Europe, such as the Aurora Festival in Sweden, AIMS in Spain, Pablo Casals in France, Banff Centre, IEMA in Austria and most recently Bang on a Can in US. I am currently a member of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, and guest Sub-Principal second Violin a the Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León OSCyL.
