Mark Fuller

Mark FullerHailed as a “major talent” in his teens, Fuller later chose to attend law school in lieu of pursuing a musical career. He then returned to the piano, studying with Robert Hamilton and attending festivals and masterclasses around the world, where he worked with such legendary artists as Vladimir Feltsman and Ian Hobson. Today, as a partner at one of Arizona’s largest law firms, and named by his peers as one of the leading commercial litigators and appellate lawyers in the country, he continues an active musical life, performing in both the United States and Europe. The acclaimed pianist Jon Nakamatsu has called Fuller “an amazing musician,” and exclaimed that “[t]he fact that he doesn’t perform full-time astonishes me.” In the same vein, Dimitri Drobatchewsky, the long-time music critic of the Arizona Republic, called Fuller’s playing “memorable,” evidencing “an unusual amount of intensity and emotion.”
Reviewing one performance, he wrote that Mr. Fuller’s playing “was not only flawless, but so dedicated and fascinating that at least this listener found it hard to breathe.” Fuller’s repertoire spans more than 300 years, from the early baroque to the 21st Century. His programs have included regional premieres of works by Pulitzer Prize-Mark Fullerwinners Ned Rorem and Aaron Jay Kernis, and his premiere recording of a two-piano suite by composer Rodney Rogers (with Robert Hamilton) is available on Albany Records (a KBAQ cd of the week). Fuller has also been heard on NPR’s “Performance Today,” and is featured in the documentary film “They Came to Play,” a New York Times Critics’ Pick which has garnered critical and audience acclaim around the country.
