His record “Parabòlic” – nominated for the Grammy awards in 2003 – and “Groc” are the ultimate example of his compositions.

In the pedagogical section, he has taught instrument lessons and Chamber Music classes at C.E.M. of Terrassa, the Municipal School of Music of Girona, the School of Music of Blanes, and he has offered courses and Master Classes at the Summer University of the UPC and the Municipal Conservatory of Music of Terrassa.

Soto’s guitar shines without ostentation. It is music without artifice, ideal to listen with attention and tranquillity.
