He later held the position of associate concertmaster in the Symphony Orchestra of the Barcelona Great Theatre of the Liceu for more than ten years. From 1999 he decided to dedicate himself fundamentally to orchestral conducting, celebrating his official presentation with the Andorran Chamber Orchestra.  Since then, he has been invited to conduct the Festival Orchestra of Canford (England), the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra Essen (Germany), the Radio FM Orchestra Sofia (Bulgaria), the Radio Orchestra Pilsen (Czech Republic), the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra (Romania), the Cadaqués Orchestra, the Oviedo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra Extremadura (Spain), and the Bottega Armonica Orchestra and the Orchestra Internazionale d'Italia (Italy).
