Gregory Fulkerson, Violinist

Gregory Fulkerson Violinist Gregory Fulkerson has distinguished himself in a broad spectrum of musical activities. Since winning first prize in the 1980 International American Music Competition, he has performed more than 35 different concerti with orchestras, including New York appearances with the Philadelphia and American symphony orchestras.

In 1992, Gregory performed the role of Einstein in a world tour revival of Philip Glass’ landmark Einstein on the Beach, a work he later recorded for the Nonesuch label. Gregory’s recording of Charles Ives’ violin sonatas on the Bridge label has become the standard version of those works.

A faculty member at Oberlin College, Gregory holds two undergraduate degrees from the school: a bachelor of music degree in violin performance and a bachelor of arts degree, with honors, in mathematics. He also holds the M.M. (1979) and the D.M.A. (1987) from Juilliard. Among those with whom he has studied violin are Ivan Galamian, Paul Kling, Daniel Majeske, and Dorothy DeLay.

Another notable recent recording by Gregory is J.S. Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Unaccompanied Violin.
