After having studied under the guidance of Juan Clemente and Vincent David, and having been awarded a Master’s Degree from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse de Paris where he was mentored by Claude Delangle, Antonio completed a “third degree” (DAI) in contemporary music and creation with Hae-Sun Kang at the same institution. In parallel, he completed a Master’s Degree in chamber music under David Walter’s guidance with the Yendo Quartet, a group he co-founded. The quartet perform regularly in numerous and diverse concerts and festivals and often featured on Radio France.
