Avner Dorman has quickly risen to become one of Israel's most successful and renowned composers. At the age of 25, he became the youngest composer to win Israel's prestigious Prime Minister's Award and that same year he was awarded the Golden Feather Award from ACUM (the Israeli Society of Composers and Publishers). Since coming to the United States, Dorman received several international awards from ASCAP, ACUM, and the Asian Composers League.
Dorman's unique approach to rhythm and timbre has attracted some of the world's leading conductors, including Zubin Mehta, Marin Alsop, Asher Fisch, and Simone Young to bring his music to international audiences at:
the New York Philharmonic
the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl
the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra
the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra at the Musikverein
Dorman's fresh, spontaneous style lends itself well to the screen and he has written for film, notably Nitzan Aviram’s award-winning film Son. His music is exclusively published by G. Schirmer, Inc. and is available on NAXOS, the world’s leading classical music label. Dorman holds a Doctorate from the Juilliard School.
