Described as an amazing talent by Gustavo Dudamel, Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana releases here his debut recording with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Entitled Through the Lens of Time, the recording brings together four modern perspectives re-imagining the Baroque tradition: a dialogue that prompts both composers and performers to explore musical giants of the past and place them in their own lives. The recording begins with Max Richter s daring reworking of Vivaldi s Four Seasons and continues with three other works , by Schnittke, Isang Yun and Salvador Brotons, that each provide a unique take on the legacy of the Baroque period. Born into a family of educators, Francisco first studied with Bernat Pomar in his hometown of Palma de Mallorca, later graduating from the Royal Conservatory of Madrid, where he matriculated under the tutelage of Manuel Guillén. He is a graduate of The Juilliard School, where he received bachelor's and master's degrees, studying with Donald Weilerstein and Masao Kawasaki, and is also an Artist Diploma graduate from the USC Thornton School of Music, where he worked with the renowned violinist Midori.
