29-year-old Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana is building an international reputation as a rising young virtuoso of outstanding potential.
A graduate of The Juilliard School and the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, where he studied with Donald Weilerstein, Masao Kawasaki and Midori Goto, Francisco is a former 1st prize winner at the Julio Cardona, Munetsugu Angel and Johannes Brahms International Violin Competitions – and was last year awarded a prestigious 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant.
His recent orchestral debuts include solo engagements with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Norwalk Symphony Orchestra, Castilla y León Symphony Orchestra, Oviedo Filarmonía and the Argentina National Orchestra.
He currently performs on the 1735 Mary Portman ex-Kreisler Guarneri del Gesù violin – on generous loan from Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
