Isidro's passion for music blossomed at the relatively late age of sixteen when by chance he heard a piece that just wouldn’t let him be. What started as a small click and innocent curiosity soon became the motor of his life. In 2004, he joined the conservatory in Sevilla, and he studied violin with José Belmonte and Sergey Teslya, and viola with Dominique Horenbeek. When introduced to historical performance practice, Isidro truly found his home. He reveled the quest to understand compositions as they were originally conceived, but more than that he fell in love with the sheer beauty of Baroque music and the rich sonorities of historical instruments. He experimented with gut strings and baroque bows, and, with the guidance of the violinist José Manuel Navarro, he was accepted for a bachelors degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2012.

 

In Amsterdam, Isidro studied violin with Sophie Gent, and from 2014 onward with Shunske Sato and Cornelis Koelmans. He also studied chamber music with Ton Koopman, Alfredo Bernardini, Pieter van Heyghen, Jed Wentz, Menno van Delft and Eduardo López Banzo; baroque viola with Jane Rogers; and orchestral playing with Sigiswald Kuijken, Giulio Prandi, Paul Dombrecht, Robert Levin and Richard Egarr. Moreover, he participated in masterclasses with Amandine Beyer, Lucy van Dael, Bojan Cicic, as well as with the teachers from the Juilliard School of New York, Robert Mealy and Cynthia Roberts.

 

In 2017 he won a scholarship from the Asociación de Amigos de la Orquesta Barroca de  Sevilla, awarding him the opportunity to work with the orchestra under the leadership of the cellist Kristin von der Goltz. He also had the privilege to play next to Rodolfo Richter in a chamber music concert of Otoño Barroco in Sevilla, with the harpsichordist Jacques Ogg in 2018 and with the conductor harpsichordist Eduardo López Banzo in 2019. As part of this scholarship, Isidro offered a recital in the 34th edition of the Festival de Música Antigua de Sevilla (FeMÀs 34).

 

Isidro currently plays with such baroque ensembles as the Amsterdam Corelli Collective (founder member), Eik en Linde, Florilegium MusicumOrquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Concerto Köln, and Ensemble La Chimera. With them he has performed in prestigious concert halls such as the Muziekgebouw aan’t IjConcertgebouw van Amsterdam, the Dutch National Opera & Ballet, Teatro de la Maestranza and the chapel of the Royal Palace in Madrid, as well as in festivals such as the Grachtenfestival Amsterdam, MA Brugge FestivalUtrecht Oude Muziek FestivalFestival Internacional de Arte Sacro of Madrid, Festival de Música Antigua de Sevilla, Festival d'Ambronay and Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik. He has given concert tours in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain, Slovenia and Japan.
