About this Artist
A leader in his generation of composer-performers, David Fulmer has garnered numerous international accolades for his bold compositional aesthetic combined with his thrilling performances. The success of his Violin Concerto at Lincoln Center in 2010 earned international attention and resulted in immediate engagement to perform the work with major orchestras and at festivals in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, and Australia. Fulmer made his European debut performing and recording his concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Matthias Pintscher in 2011. A surge of new commissions have led to recent and upcoming performances by the Berlin Philharmonic, Ensemble Intercontemporain, New York Philharmonic, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus, Carnegie Hall, Alte Oper Frankfurt, and the Salzburg Foundation. This season Fulmer leads the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Elision Ensemble, Sydney Modern Music Ensemble, and numerous ensembles and orchestras throughout the United States and Europe. He was recently the recipient of both the Charles Ives Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Carlos Surinach Commissioning Award from BMI in 2013. He holds a doctorate from The Juilliard School, and joined the faculty of Columbia University in 2009.
