In fulfillment of the requirements for his master's degree in music (MM), Fabio successfully accomplished the challenge of performing two of the colossal piano trilogies by César Franck: Prelude, Fugue and Variation Opus 18 and Prelude, Chorale and Fugue. The program was complimented with the Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano which he played with the collaboration of violinist William Fitzpatrick, former first violinist of the New York String Quartet. His thesis also comprised Franck’s Symphonic Variations for Piano and Orchestra which he performed with the Fullerton Symphony conducted by Prof. David Lewis. Fabio interpreted the third piano trilogy by Franck: Prelude, Aria and Finale after obtaining his MM in the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Amigos del Arte of Rosario, Argentina; thus achieving his ambition of performing all major piano solo, chamber music and piano and orchestra works by César Franck.
