Francisco Fleta Polo was born in 1931 in Barcelona. He attended the Barcelona Conservatory for Advanced Studies in Music where he obtained an advanced certificate in the Violin, Viola and Trumpet qualifications and trained as a Composer and Conductor.

He played the viola in the Symphonic orchestras of the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona’s opera house (1961-64), RTVE, the Spanish state broadcasting company, (Madrid 1965-69) and the City of Barcelona (since 1970). He was selected for the post of Viola Professor at the Barcelona Conservatory for advanced studies in music in a national eliminatory exam.

Hi has a very wide catalogue of works for several instruments and instrumental ensembles which have played by several generations of students in the course of their music studies. These works were written with his students in mind. He has also composed works for orchestra including four symphonies; the second and the third were first played in public by the Barcelona Symphonic orchestra and the fourth by the Barcelona Municipal Band. His Sonata for the Viola op.69 was chosen to be played at the International Viola Congress in Illinois (USA). For his students he has designed a highly successful practical course for the Viola and Violin. Most of his works are edited by this company (Clivis Publicacions).

His music is rich in counterpoint and timbre effects which give it a very unique air of genius.
