Francisco FULLANA & the ALABAMA Symphony Orchestra
The Four Seasons Recomposed: the magic of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with Richter’s unique and refreshing take on the piece. Fullana, after his successful recording with the CBSO and under the baton of Carlos Izcaray, is back to Alabama’s season to offer his personal and beautiful rendition of this work, with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.
The coming year will find Fullana in debuts as a soloist with the Castilla y Leon and Las Cruces Symphony Orchestras, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and returns with Alabama, Balearic Islands, Dana Point, Extremadura and Xalapa Symphonies, among the concerto performances in U.S., Europe and Asia. Among the many chamber music engagements on his upcoming schedule, he has been invited to join the prestigious roster of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society Two, starting in 2018.
Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana has received international praise as a “rising star” (BBC Music Magazine), an “amazing talent” (maestro Gustavo Dudamel) and “a paragon of delicacy” (San Francisco’s Classical Voice). His 2016 recital debut at Carnegie Hall was noted for his “joy and playfulness in collaboration; it was perfection” (New York Classical Review).
A native of the Spanish Balearic island of Mallorca, Fullana is making a name for himself as both a performer and as a leader of innovative educational institutions. His active performing schedule has included a Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Bayerische Philharmonie, under the baton of the late Sir Colin Davis, the Sibelius Concerto with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester, and a Brahms Concerto led by Señor Dudamel at Venezuela’s Simon Bolivar Hall. He has soloed with the Vancouver, Pacific, Alabama, Maryland, Madrid and Hof Symphonies and the Spanish Radio Television Orchestra, while collaborating with such noted conductors as Davis, Dudamel, and also Alondra de la Parra, Christoph Poppen, Jeannette Sorrell, and Josh Weilerstein.
