He was the music producer of more than fifty compact discs for the RTVE Musica label, highlighting the eight volumes of the Great Spanish Pianists series that appeared between 2003 and 2007, among others.
He began his musical studies in his hometown with his grandmother, the Mexican pianist María Parrondo. He was a student of Manuel Carra at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Madrid and furthered his studies with teachers such as Paul Badura Skoda, Eduardo del Pueyo, Rosa Sabater and Federico Mompou, among others.
