As the First Prize winner of the XIV Bartok-Kabalevsky-Prokofieff International Competition, Ciro Fodere‘s latest performances have been described as “masterful, electric, by turns fiery and lyrical” by The Post and Courier, and as featuring “technical sheen articulation, alert dynamic shading, and an imaginative approach” by The Miami Herald, which also raves, “edge-of-the-seat thrilling.” In addition to soloing with both major orchestras in Uruguay, he has performed numerous times as soloist with the Charleston Symphony, Carnegie Mellon Philharmonic, Sendai Symphony in Japan, Philharmonic of Extremadura in Spain, Symphony of the Americas, the New World Symphony, the Florida Orchestra, the NWSA Orchestra, and the Miami Symphony.
