Francisco, Paco for friends...

He provides the point of balance and calm to this miscellany. A long career full of modesty, generosity and know-how makes Francisco the perfect cantus for this musical project.

After finishing his musical studies at the Superior Conservatory of Music of Valencia with Professor Mr. Vicente Martí in 1984, he joined the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra as an oboist and English horn player, becoming later the oboe soloist. Since then, he has developed an intense activity as a concertist both in chamber and orchestra music projects: Bach Orchestra of Las Palmas, Camerata Música viva, Wind Quintet Sicania, Orchestra Cordoba’s Wind Quintet, Asturias Symphony Orchestra, Castilla-León Symphony Orchestra, City of Granada, Cordoba, Enigma Group, Balearic Symphony, Barcelona Symphony, Teatre Lliure Orchestra and Cadaqués Symphony Orchestra.

His interest in historic oboes compelled him to complete his training under Alfredo Bernardini’s guidance from 2000 to 2001. In the field of historically informed performance, he is a member of the Los Mvsicos de Sv Alteza Baroque Orchestra and he has assiduously collaborated with other ensembles, such as Ars Combinatoria, Capilla Real de Madrid, El Concierto Español, La Tempestad, Vespres d’Arnadí, The Scholars, Helsinki Baroque Orchesta and Hippocampus.

In 1990 he became Oboe Professor, first at the Superior Conservatory of Music of Cordoba and, since 1996, in Zaragoza (Superior Conservatory of Music of Aragón, CSMA).
