Born in Buenos Aires, he studied piano, woodwinds and later the harpsichord under Colin Tilney in London and Hubert Bédard in Paris. With a PhD in Mathematics from Imperial College, back to Argentina he introduced the authentic harpsichords, building a double French reviewed as the best instrument in S.America. His research and writings on early instruments and performance have been endorsed by leading musicians such as Gustav Leonhardt, Igor Kipnis and John Barnes. They include four favourably-reviewed books—all available from Lulu—and several papers. He was Professor of Harpsichord and examiner of Organ at the Conservatorio Nacional in Buenos Aires, and performed both instruments in different countries, with favourable reviews. In the Bach-year 1985 he premiered the performance of J.S. Bach’s harpsichord concertos using his reconstruction of Bach’s fingerings. Recent teaching practices include masterclasses in different countries. He relocated to Ireland in 2001.
