The recently-concluded Vivaldi "Four Seasons" concerts by Apollo's Fire featured the Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana (Foo-YANA), who is the ensemble's current artist-in-residence. He told WCLV's Jacqueline Gerber how he came to love Baroque music at an early age, how one of his teachers, Donald Weilerstein (formerly of the Cleveland Institute of Music) influenced him, what he will do as the artist-in-residence, and how to determine when a violin bow is the right one for you.
