Barton Workshop

The Barton Workshop
The Barton Workshop is an Amsterdam-based ensemble founded in 1989 by American composer-trombonist James Fulkerson. The ensemble is committed to performing experimental music. They primarily create “composer portrait” concerts, usually in collaboration with the composers, providing either an overview or an in-depth representation of the chosen composer’s work. The Barton Workshop has collaborated with composers such as Alvin Lucier, Christian Wolff, Nicolas Collins, Steve Lacy, Philip Corner, Hyo-shin Na and Frank Denyer, giving world and European premieres of works by all of the above plus Galina Ustvolskaya, Henryk Gorecki, Ernstalbrecht Stiebler, James Fulkerson, Jerry Hunt and others. They have made important multi-CD recordings of Morton Feldman, John Cage, Christian Wolff, Alvin Lucier, Philip Corner and James Tenney in addition to single CD recordings of Jerry Hunt, Galina Ustvolskaja, James Drew, Fulkerson, Denyer, Tenney, Wolff, Cage, and Feldman.
