He’s a great ambassador for the work we’re producing in the School of Wind, Brass and Percussion, and in particular the bassoon department, led by Stefano Canuti and his team.’

Andrés has performed under the baton of world-renowned conductors including Gustavo Dudamel, Dietrich Paredes, Claudio Abbado, and Krzysztof Penderecki, and has participated in masterclasses with distinguished artists including Sergio Azzolini, Stefano Canuti, Henning Trog and musicians from the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. He has competed in numerous festivals and in June 2016 won the RNCM Gold Medal competition.
