Francisco Jimeno is a Spanish violinist living in London. He is a great enthusiast and promoter of the contemporary repertoire and has been working with several composers in the creation and premiere of new works for his instrument.
His collaboration with the Catalan composer David Bozzo has resulted in several pieces for solo violin, string quartet and violin and piano, with an active role in his review, publication and premiere. Noteworthy is the premiere of the violin concerto at St James Piccadilly in 2015, with the orchestra Philharmonia Britannica. The result of this collaboration also includes the recording of a CD with Bozzo’s solo violin music that was released in September 2014. It is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Other performances with contemporary works include the premiere in UK of the concerto for violin by Claudia Montero, awarded a Latin Grammy in 2014, performed with the London City Orchestra. His actual project includes a series of concerts with new works for violin solo dedicated to him by composers of several countries, including Spain, Italy and United States, which will culminate with the recording of a CD. He had successful performances in Palau de la Musicain Valencia and several venues in Barcelona. Next destinations will be London and the Music Festival of Contemporary Music in Trieste.
