The Newham Philharmonic Orchestra booked Arturo for a Newham Philharmonic course and performances and was extremely pleased with his playing, contributions and general attitude to the project.

From other customers:

"Arturo’s playing is rooted in good and ever-growing knowledge of historical performance practices and bass instruments. His playing is well controlled and he certainly has the knowledge and ability to perform in an engaging way that is appropriate to the styles. Arturo is a lovely player who we are sure to hear more from."
