Pablo was born in 1991 in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Tenerife. He started to study flute in the conservatory of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where he finished his Intermediate degree with Catherine Biteur with honors and special award. In 2009 he was admitted in the Royal Conservatory of Madrid. He studied with Manuel Rodríguez Arribas and he graduated in 2013 with honors. While he was studying in Madrid he became interested in early music and he started to play traverso. In 2013 he was admitted for the Early Music Performance Master in Barcelona, where he studied traverso with Marc Hantai. In June 2017 he finished the master course of baroque and classical flute in Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag with Wilbert Hazelzet and Kate Clark with honors and distinction.
He takes part of The Goldfinch Ensemble, who got the first prize in the International Händel Festpiele Gottingen Competition in 2016 and the second prize in the International Early Music Competition in Loire Valley, with William Christie chairing the jury in 2015. Their international career was launched in 2015 when they played in festivals throughout Europe such as Festival de Sablé (FR), Festival de Ambronay (FR), Festival di Natale Pavia (IT), York Early Music Festival (ENG), Lagos Early Music Festival (PT) among others. Also, they have been selected for the EEEmerging project, a program supported by the European Union to support promising young European ensembles. In April 2017, the Goldfinch Ensemble will receive the ‘Chapelconcert Chamber Music Prize’ (Goirle).
He has played in some early music orchestras and ensembles like Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Balthasar Neumann Orchestra, Australian Romantic&Classical Orchestra, Bach Orchestra and Choir of the Netherlands, Armonia Atenea, Luthers Bach Ensemble among others.

About The Class

The traverso class is open to players of all different levels (from beginners to professionals). It is also open to modern flute players who are interested on the historical performance practice and would like to get more tools to apply on their playing with the modern flute (if that is the case of any of the students, please contact me in advance:
We will work in both musical expression (gestures, rhetoric, character, harmony…) and technical aspects (different articulation, fingering, sound colours etc).

*Important: always bring the continuo part!

Chamber music class:
This class is open to different chamber music ensembles who would like to develop all the different aspects of the group playing. If the group is not formed beforehand, it is also possible to create more groups there in Valtice. For the traverso students: duos are also welcome!

*Please bring an extra copy for the teacher

Suggested Repertoire

Flute repertoire from the 18th and 19th centuries. I will appreciate if the students bring pieces of different styles (French, Italian and German). Classical and Romantic flutes (and repertoire) are welcome.

Chamber music:
Open to all kind of works from the Baroque to the Romantic period.

For both classes: if you have an idea of what you would like to work on, please let me know in advance.
