Rodolfo was born in Argentina where he studied bandoneón with Jorge Puebla and Alberto Hilario Iribarne and piano with Monica Rizzo and Roberto Urbay at the National University of Cuyo in Mendoza.

In 2004 he joined the Bandó Quintet which is a group comprised of musicians from Mendoza. A year later the Bandó Quintet came to the United States where their performances in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. were met with enthusiastic acclaim. Rodolfo has performed with the Pan American Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Theater, and at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium. He currently resides in New York City, where he performs in many tango events.
