Martin Gendelman


With a markedly international flair, the music of Martín Gendelman has been performed in Europe, South America, and across the United States. His aestheticsis the result of a diverse musical experience, influenced by expressions such as South American folk, American jazz, and the European tradition of art music. 

Created for solo, chamber groups, electronics, and orchestral ensembles, his works materialize a genuine contemporary expression, and have been received with equal enthusiasm by performers and audiences. Simultaneously, he has led many cross-disciplinary projects. Collaborating with artists from an array of disciplines, he has explored the connections between musical content and both the theatrical and spatial aspects of a performance.
