The success of his debut album “Rebirth” (2019, Digressione Music), highlighted in the reviews published in specialized magazines such as Jazzitalia and Klassic Heute, launched him to new prominence on the music scene and allowed him to express his talent as a composer rooted in the classics, yet transcending genre boundaries thanks to his studies and passion for both classical music and jazz.

His new album “Hommage à Petrucciani” (Stradivarius Music Label), released in 2023, is an astonishing tribute to the great jazz pianist Michel Petrucciani, enriched by the collaboration with his son Alexandre Petrucciani.
