He primarily focuses on chamber music collaborating with various Ensembles, such as Accademia Montis Regalis, Milano Classica, Stagione Armonica, Concert de’ Cavalieri, Cenacolo Musicale, Ensemble Il Continuo.
He collaborated as first chair on cello with various directors, such as T. Koopman, D. Gutknecht, A. De Marchi, E. Höbarth, L. Ghielmi, S. Balestracci, G. Capuano.
