Current projects

 

Over the last year I have been working intensively on an audiovisual project based around contemporary solo piano repertoire recorded in Video HD to be accessed freely. You can visit the project here: Contemporary Piano Video Library

 

 

Awards

 

Much of my time is spent studying contemporary piano literature and, as a performer, in trying to discover ways of how I can share this fascination and present it to maximum effect. This dedication has garnered many different prizes at specialist international music competitions, such as: first prize at the “Xavier Montsalvatge” in Gerona, first prize at the “Valentino Bucchi” in Rome, second prize at the International Contemporary Music Competition in Sitges, third prize at the “Ettore Pozzoli” in Milan, three special prizes at the Orleans Competition and special prize for contemporary music at the ”José Iturbi” in Valencia and “Jaen International Piano Competition”. I have also been awarded first prize at the international piano competitions of Ibiza and “Ciudad de San Sebastián”.

 

 

Education

 

I have been fortunate enough to have studied with some excellent piano teachers: Margarita Sitjes in Alicante, Alexander Hrisanide at the Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam, Ana Guijarro at the Sevilla Conservatory and Josep Colom at the Alcalá de Henares University.

 

 

Professional activity

 

Over the years, I have played at many important concert venues such as the Lérida Auditorium, the Zaragoza Auditorium, the March Foundation in Madrid, the Palau de la Música and the Auditorium in Barcelona, the Carré Saint-Vincent in Orleans, the CNSM in Paris, the Palau de la Música in Valencia, the Manoel Theatre in Malta or the Benaroya Hall in Seattle.

 

Apart from performing in these great halls, I have also played at many of the music world's most prestigious festivals, such as the International Festival in Ibiza, the "Quincena Musical" in San Sebastián, the Forfest Festival in the Czech Republic, the International Contemporary Music Festival in Alicante and the Ensems Festival in Valencia, and with the Barcelona Sinfonietta, the l'Empordá Chamber Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestra Ciutat d'Eix, the Grup Instrumental de Valencia and the Orleans Symphony Orchestra.

I have given many piano lessons at the "Conservatorio Superior de Murcia" and the "Conservatorio Profesional de Alicante". I'm currently professor of contemporary piano repertoire at San Sebastian's Musikene Conservatory in the Basque country.
