I am principal viola player of Camerata Bern since 2014 and member of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra since 2009. I am regularly invited as guest leader in the major orchestras of Spain, such as Opera del Liceu de Barcelona, Euskadiko Simfoniak Orkestra, Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona and Les Dissonances. I also collaborate with ensembles like BandArt under the leadership of Gordan Nikolic.
I am founding member of the Dalia Quartet, group with whom I have played until 2019 and I have been member of Port Klezmer, group that explores the roots of popular jewish music.
I also teach in the Conservatori Superior del Liceu de Barcelona and I have been involved in a variety of music education projects around the world, and collaborated regularly with associations and organisations that develop projects to integrate and educate children at risk of exclusion.
I was born in Cervera, a tiny village in Catalunya and started my musical studies at the age of five with Paul Cortese. Later on I continued my studies first with Walter Küssner and then with Tabea Zimmermann in Berlin.
Today I live with my partner and our beautiful two kids in the countryside where I find the peace to recharge my energy and reconnect to the nature.
