Enrique brought a wonderful warm sound to our chamber group with his stylish and elegant double bass skills. It gave the ensemble gravitas and depth of soul, and was a joy to hear. I highly recommend Enrique.

Absolutely first-rate player! Played excellently and sensitively on the day, managing some difficult repertoire at very short notice. Would thoroughly recommend this fantastic musician.

Enrique is a first-class player who has worked with my orchestra in several concerts at late notice and in little rehearsal. He has led the section fantastically in a variety of repertoire all played with style and quality.

Enrique has performed with my orchestra and strings ensembles a few times. He is a very experienced, versatile Double Bassist and has a very nice personality - easy to get along with. Always punctual and very reliable, a couple of events where I couldn't get hold of Bass players, Enrique stepped in at short notice and is an excellent sight- reader. He is one of my regular Bassists now. I would highly recommend him!
