He was musically inspired by artists like Menahem Pressler, Alfonso Montecino, Karl-Heinz Kammerling, Sergiu Celibidache, Rosalyn Tureck and Bernard Greenhouse. José Gallardo received numerous national and international awards. He was invited to numerous musical festivals, such as Chamber Music Festival Lockenhaus, Verbier Festival, Lucerne Festival, Chopin and his Europe Warsaw, Schleswig Holstein, Kronberg Academy Festival, Cork Music Festival, City of London Festival, Musiktage Hitzacker, Budapest Academy Festival and the Rheingau Music Festival.
