André is the Principal Flute of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. His first orchestral experiences at the National Youth Orchestra of Spain (JONDE), the Britten-Pears Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester led him soon to perform with such orchestras as the Sinfónica de Galicia, Filharmonía de Galicia, Sinfónica de Tenerife, Orquesta de Cadaqués, Orquesta de la Comunidad Valenciana, Orchestra Mozart, Nacional do Porto, Staatkskapelle Dresden and Sinfónica de Asturias. He performs regularly as a Guest Principal Flute with the Sinfónica de Castilla y León, Filarmónica de Gran Canaria, Sinfónica de Barcelona (OBC), Gran Teatro del Liceu, Scottish BBC, Malaysian Philharmonic, Spira Mirabilis and Orchestra Leonore.
He is not only an experienced orchestral musician, but also a passionate chamber musician. When he is not playing in the Orchestra you can find him performing with his wind quintet Azahar Ensemble, the Natalia Ensemble - a symphonic ensemble which he founded and where he is the artistic director and arranger - or in one of his duo projects with harpist Bleuenn Le Friec, or guitarist Pedro Mateo González.
In 2019, together with Oihana Gimenez, they founded the Festival de Música de Cámara de Anguiano in La Rioja (Spain).
André studied in his hometown Santiago de Compostela and Salamanca with Luis Soto, Laurent Blaiteau and Pablo Sagredo. He then went on to study with János Bálint at the Hochschule für Musik Detmold (Germany) and with Jacques Zoon at the Haute École de Musique de Gèneve (Switzerland).
He loves sharing his passion for music with his students at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón, the Centro Superior de Música de Galicia, the Fundación Barenboim-Said and the youth orchestras he coaches each season (JONDE, OJA, JOGV, OSIM, OSAV…).
His numerous arrangements used at his workshops (flute duo, flute ensemble, wind quintet, large wind ensemble, mixed ensemble…) could be find at the publishing house Jopfen Music.
