Following the completion of his conservatory studies — following which he won an award given to the highest-performing music students graduating that year in Italy — he received a scholarship from the French foundation “Zygmunt Zaleski ”, later studying at Paris' Ecole Normale de Musique “Alfred Cortot” with Pierre-Yves Artaud.
