“1º Because music is my goal. 

Maximiliano first studied at Conservatoriom Superior de Música de Malaga which he completed with distinction, continuing his studies at the  Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Maarten Mostert. During his studies in Amsterdam his interest in baroque music grew and in 2014 he completed his Masters in baroque cello. He studied with Viola de Hoog and received regular masterclasses and lessons from Anner Bijlsma.

For his Master's research paper Maximiliano researched 'The development of violoncello repertoire in 17th century  Bologna', a topic he is still very much busy and passionate with!

As a performer he has played with many important orchestras such as the National Youth Orchestra of Spain, West Eastern Divan Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, and Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest. As a cellist in historical performance practice he has played with Sweelink Baroque Orchestra and Nieuwe Philharmonic Utrecht. He has worked with musicians such as Daniel Baremboim, Reinbert de Leeuw, Teunis van der Zwart, Richard Egarr, Job ter Haar, Candida Thompson, Jasper de Waal, Johannes Leertouwer, Shunske Sato, Xavier Philips, Sigiswald Kuijken, Hiro Kurosaki, Marc Albrecht, Hartmut Haenchen, Carlo Rizzi, and many others. 

Currently playing in two new and ambitious baroque projects, Maximiliano is founder member of the ensemble Amsterdam Corelli Collective, and continuo player of the trio Fons Harmonicus.
