I have freelanced with orchestras in London, Italy , Belgium and Germany.
I principal work as chamber and solo musician with my own projects based on the development of new repertoire , following the astonish example of Giovanni Bottesini in term of transcribing and adapt masterpieces and new music for double bass.
I have a huge repertoire that I transcribed and compose by myself.
I have written a circle of fantasy on Giacomo Puccini's Operas, Arrangements of Frank Zappa's Masterpieces, my own composition inspired by the virtuoso music of the 19th century, stravinsky music and Frank Zappa's as well everything is for solo double bass and piano or other small ensemble.
