Considered among the best flutists of his generation, appreciated for his interpretations that are able to evoke the great flutists of the past, he begins studying flute in 1992 after listening to the well-known French virtuoso Jean-Pierre Rampal.
A sought-after performer and with a vast repertoire that embraces Baroque music until the early 1900s, he graduated brilliantly at the “Tito Schipa” Conservatory of Lecce, perfecting himself with the international soloists Andrea Griminelli who writes about him as “is one of the young promises of the Italian flute” and Claudi Arimany who defines him “among the best flutists and interesting interpreters of his generation”.
He collaborated with the great flutist Sir James Galway, with Massimiliano Damerini, Andrea Griminelli, Claudi Arimany, Lady Jeanne Galway; as well as with the Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson (for the International Residency Programme at the Music and Arts “Sound Res”), with Vittoria Yeo and the Luciano Pavarotti Foundation, Hans-Jörg Schellemberger (1st Oboe at the Berliner Philharmonisches Orchester), Claudio Paradiso, Lorenzo Castriota Skanderbeg, Karl Martin, and Mons. Marco Frisina.
In 2009 he has been invited to study at the “Ecole Normale de Musique A. Cortot” in Paris, from the Maestro Shigenori Kudo.
He has studied with flutists as Jànos Bàlint, Pierre-Yves Artaud and achieves the Degree in Musical Teaching Methodology at the “Nino Rota” School of Music in Monopoli, Italy; he got the Degree in Flute Soloist at the “G. Paisiello” Musical Institute in Taranto, Italy – studying with the flute teacher Angelo Malerba – and the Degree in Chamber Music. He attends “High Specializing Master for Wind Instrument Musicians in Soloist and Orchestras’ Repertoire”.
He won the scholarship for Andrea Griminelli’s Masterclass for two consecutive years (2005 and 2007 editions), also performing for private television (including “Puglia Channel” on the live international TV broadcast on May 1, 2008). He is invited by Milan EXPO-2015 at the “Stella Polare Auditorium”, performing on a repertoire of J.S. Bach, under the direction of Annemette Schlosser Bernardelli.
He studied opera singing with Vanna Massari Camassa – Tito Schipa’s pupil.
In 2018 he published for Da Vinci Classics (distributed by NAXOS and EGEA Music) a disc dedicated to the Trio-Sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach in collaboration with the pianist Alberto Ferro. Even more recently (April 2019) one of his recordings (Sarabande from Solo Flute Partita in A minor BWV 1013 by J.S. Bach) has been chosen to be included in a movie scene produced by Metafilms and distributed by Les Films Séville.
