In 2009 he made an extensive tour of five countries in Europe presenting his first cd, dedicated to Argentine composers, with notable success of the public and specialized critics. In this tour he taught masterclasses in the Conservatory of Vorarlberg (Austria) and the Conservatory of Music in Vigo (Spain).
