BAROQUE VIOLIN

CONDUCTOR

Enrique was born in Spain. After studying violin at Francisco Comesaña Madrid in 2005, his interest in historical performance led him to study baroque violin at the Koninklijk Conservatory in The Hague with Ryo Terakado, where he graduated in 2010.

He studied and received master classes from some of the early music luminaries such as Enrico Gatti, Hiro Kurosaki, François Fernandez, Elisabeth Walfisch, Mira Glodeanu, Ton Koopman, etc.

He played with groups such as La Ritirata, Banchetto Musicale, Baroque Orchestra of the Netherlands and is concertmaster and soloist of Contrasto Armónico, with whom he has recorded more than 10 CDs. He also played as concertmaster with the Concerto Barocco and Damascus Baroque soloists and is a member of the soloists of the Capella Enrico Stuart in Rome. He has played in some of the best concert halls, festivals, radios and televisions in Europe, America and the Middle East.

He teaches regularly at several summer courses in the Czech Republic, Poland and Canada and has been a visiting teacher at the Damascus Conservatory.

He is the founder and artistic director of the baroque ensemble "La Villanesca" and conductor of the "Lausitzer Baroque ensemble". In 2019 he made his debut as an opera conductor in Poland and Germany, where he gave the first performance in modern times of the pastoral melodrama "Giove in Argo" by Antonio Lotti. With the association Ars Augusta eV he has led two master classes: in 2020 a masterclass on the Italian madrigal and in 2021 a masterclass on the German madrigal by Heinrich Schütz and Andreas Hammerschmidt. The project was funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media in the Schlesisches Museum zu Görlitz and MBM eV.
