I was born in Barcelona in 1947, and music allways was very important in our family.

In young age I won the International competitions of Jaén and Santander, and later on the Ministry for Culture of Spain gave me the National Prize of Music.

In the 70s I lived in France and studied in the École Normale de Musique and most of my discography runs under the label "Mandala".

I have played with all the Spanish orchestras but also in recitals and chamber music in all the major festivals and auditoriums, in Spain and abroad. Though I am of introverse temper, being mainly inclined to play recitals and chamber music, I am not able to renounce to the opportunities of enjoy the marvels of orchestral repertoire.

Pedagogy has obtained increasingly a special value; apart from teaching regularly in master classes, I teach since 1990 in the University of Alcalá de Henares, and in Superior Conservatory of Zaragoaza as well as the Musikeon of Valencia.

It is a privilege for me to make music, and I thank all the people who have taken the effort of coming to share what for me is a daily miracle.
