He has performed as concertmaster for ensembles led by famous conductors . The CD features works for solo violin composed by Johann Sebastian Bach and Niccolo Paganini. These works are among the most musically rewarding and technically difficult in the violin repertoire.

unusually fine sound quality, executed with refinement of technique
Unusually fine sound quality, executed with refinement of technique. Franklin Foster plays with a beautiful tone and you hear all the subtleties of the composers' counterpoint! The performance of the works on this CD are among the finest that I have heard!
