In 1964, he furthered his studies at the Santa Cecilia National Academy in Rome under Goffredo Petrassi, on a scholarship from the Juan March Foundation in Madrid. In the following year he won the Tormo de Plata Prize on the occasion of the IV Cuenca religious Music Week for Cantico delle creature. With Luis de Pablo and Cristbal Halffter, he also represented Spain at the 39th International Festival held by the International Contemporary Music Society (SIMC) in Madrid. He became lecturer in Musical Composition and Form at the Madrid Royal Conservatory Music in 1974. Five years later his Hispavox recording of Concierto aguediano granted him the Ministry of Culture Prize and in 1981 the Ministry of Cultures Andrés Segovia Composition Prize for Evocaciones and Cross of San Jorge (St. George) awarded by the Teruel Provincial Authority.

In 1982 he became an elected member of the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid and in 1985 he took the Tomás Bretón medal from the Association of Spanish Authors and Artists. Following an international symposium held to discuss the figure of Valle-Inclán in 1986, Abril was commissioned by the National Institute of Dramatic Arts and Music (INAEM) to write an opera based on Divinas palabras, to be prèmiered at the Teatro Real in Madrid after completion of its reconversion into an opera house.
