As a chamber musician, André has played in hundreds of chamber music festivals around Europe, performing with the Azahar Ensemble, the Natalia Ensemble or with one of his duo projects with guitarist Pedro Mateo González, pianist Irene Alfageme, or harpist Bleuenn Le Friec.

He also enjoys a busy solo career and has appeared as soloist with orchestras including Sinfónica de Galicia, Real Filharmonía de Galicia, Sinfónica de Castilla y León, Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid, Dresden Staatskapelle, Scottish Chamber, Georgian Sinfonietta or Filharmonia Zabrzańska.

A dedicated teacher, André loves to share his passion for music with his students at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the Barenboim-Said Academy and the youth orchestras that he coaches each season.

André studied in his hometown Santiago de Compostela with Luis Soto and Laurent Blaiteau. He then went on to study in Paris, Salamanca, Madrid, Detmold and Geneva with teachers Pablo Sagredo, János Bálint and Jacques Zoon. He joined the SCO as Principal Flute in early 2020.
