Later, he graduated in Orchestral Conducting with Maestro Octav Calleja, Enrique García Asensio, Antoni Ros Marbà and Sergiu Comissiona. It was decisive in his career to come into contact with Sergiu Celibidache and Carlo Maria Giulini
His career as a conductor started with the lead of the Madrid Real Conservatorio de Musica’s Symphony Orchestra (1995-1999) and that centre’s music contemporary group. With these groups he worked extensively as a teacher and as a concert artist; his performances in the Auditorio Nacional de Müsica and Musikfestpiele Saar in 1999 received great compliments from the critics.
