The young composer, violinist, and conductor David Fulmer has won considerable international success. His Violin Concerto at Lincoln Center in 2010 earned wide attention and resulted in immediate engagements to perform the work with major orchestras and at festivals in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, Scandinavia, and Australia. Fulmer made his European début performing and recording the Violin Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Matthias Pintscher in February 2011. A surge in Fulmer’s compositional activity has resulted from a series of distinctive commissions from major international orchestras, a new Violin Concerto for virtuoso Stefan Jackiw, and several new works for notable contemporary ensembles. Fulmer is the first American to win the International Edvard Grieg Competition for Composers (2010). He also has received the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award, the BMI Composer Award, and the Charles Ives Award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He recently graduated from The Juilliard School, where he received his doctorate, having studied composition with Milton Babbitt and violin with Robert Mann.
