Majorcan violinist Francisco Fullana returns to Majorca for Christmas after highly acclaimed performances in South and North America.
Palma.—Fullana recently performed with the Orquesta Sinfónica Teresa Carreño de Venezuela in Caracas.
The concert was one of the last of the season to be conducted by Gustavo Dudamel and, was not only a sell out, Fullana received wide spread praise by the critics in the Venezuelan media for his Johannes Brahms recital.
“A glorious triumph for Francisco Fullana and conductor” proclaimed one the critics.
The First Prize winner in the 21st International Johannes Brahms Violin Competition 2014 (Austria) and National Violin Prizewinner of the Pablo de Sarasate Competition, Fullana has won competitions in Europe and the US.
And yesterday, he was travelling from New York to Philadelphia with his quarter for a final concert before returning home for Christmas.
Fullana, a recipient of a 1679 Pietro Guarneri violin, generously on loan from the Stradivari Society of Chicago, will return full of energy for the New Year.
“The concert with Dudamel, with whom I had been wanting to perform for a very long time, was a total success,” he said.
“I am very, very happy and I am convinced that the ‘Dudamel effect’ is going to have a very important effect on my career as a soloist.
“And, I am convinced that, as a result, I am going to be presented with a number of new projects and opportunities to work which will help me to continue growing, as a person and as a violinist,” he added.
