Biography
Enrico's musical studies began at the age of three – with lessons from his father, also a professional musician. After studying at the Purcell School and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and extensive quartet coaching from all four members of the Amadeus Quartet, he was invited to become a member of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, where he stayed for ten years.

During this time he worked closely with all three of its artistic directors – Sir Neville Marriner, Iona Brown, and Ken Sillito – and with a roster of the world's greatest soloists and singers. He has also played with the other major British orchestras and is a regular in the London commercial recording studios.

Enrico is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
