The great Russian Maestro wrote about him: “he is a cellist of exceptional qualities, a complete artist and a formed musician, with an extraordinary sound which flows as a splendid Italian voice”.

His international activity as a soloist includes performances with prestigious orchestras such as the BBC and the Rotterdam Philarmonic Orchestras, the Orchestre Nationale de France, Filarmonica della Scala, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the State Orchestra of São Paulo, the Tokyo, Toronto and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, the Gewandhausorchester. In 2010 he recorded the Shostakovich cello concertos numbers 1 and 2 and the Bach cello suites.
