Specialist in Latin-Jazz Clarinet. Quick and high standard of professional quality.
I'm a clarinet player born in Barcelona and currently based in Rotterdam. My work is centred in the sound of the clarinet. Improvisation and sight reading (reading sheet music) are my strengths. Ideas, composition and professional experience in several music genres and professional experience with other art disciplines.
I'm majoring in Latin Clarinet at Codarts – University for the Arts under the guidance of the well known multi-instrumentalist Alex Simu. The international environment of Rotterdam provided me the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of artists in different settings: orchestral experience with Ricciotti Orchestra in RadioTour Holland 2019, with the Codarts Pop Orchestra to several World Music ensembles, including Karizma (flamenco), Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the singer songwriter Sara Abraham and jazz singer Florike de Geus. I played in several countries, including Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, France, and The Netherlands.
