Urruchi plays a fundamental role in the promotion of the bass clarinet as a soloist instrument.
Offering concerts internationally, both as soloist and as chamber musician, he performs a great contribution to the development of the repertoire of this instrument.
In collaboration with recognised composers from different countries, he works in the creation of new pieces for bass clarinet. As a result of this intense work, he released two CD ́s. A long wave in common, for solo and chamber music compositions and Concerto for bass clarinet and string orchestra. Both recorded under the label iTinerant.
Born in Spanish city Miranda de Ebro, he started playing violin at the age of four with María Madru.
