David Fons

One of the most outstanding violists of his generation, nationally and internationally recognized as a first prize winner in viola, David Fons studied with Vicente Ortiz, Luis Roig, Luis Llacer, Jesse Levine and Wilfried Strehle.

In orchestras such as OSN, OCV or Collegium Instrumentale he has been able to work with masters such as F. Ayo, N. Chumachenco, Y. Menuhin, V. Ashkenazy, Z. Mehta or F. X. Roth among others.

He has participated in countless of the most important chamber music festivals in Europe and Latin America, as a member of the Trio Rebec, Palomares-Fons Duo, Trio Acento, Viola Sings Duo and as a collaborator of the Beethoven Klavier Quartett, Ensemble de Cadaqués and V430.

Versed soloist, he has performed in the auditoriums of Zaragoza, Vigo, Badajoz or Valencia among others, alongside conductors and soloists such as Cristóbal Soler, Beatriz Fernández, Jesse Levine, Vasko Vassilev or Franco Petrachi.

In January 2019 he presents his first recording work “Viola Oppression”, which contains the sonatas of R. Clarke and D. Shostakovich for viola and piano, together with the pianist Kei Hikichi, for the prestigious label Orpheus Classical, obtaining excellent reviews.

From the concern to spread the viola repertoire, he premieres in Spain the Suite by Agustí Borgunyó for viola and orchestra, and new repertoire dedicated to him, such as the concerto for viola and orchestra, written by the composer Javier Costa, “De soledad sonando…” (Of solitude sounding…).

David uses for his interpretations a viola Giacommo e Leandro Bisiach from 1954.
