"Fulmer is one of the most important conductors and musicians working with contemporary music...His piece was a gorgeous, abstractly lyrical set of dramatic gestures and juxtapositions." (Sky's Acetylene - New York Philharmonic) – New York Classical Review

Winner of the 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship, and 2016 Koussevitzky Award, David Fulmer has garnered numerous international accolades for his bold compositional aesthetic combined with his thrilling performances. A leader in his generation of composer-performers, 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.
