“My music communicates emotions with clearly articulated gestures that can be understood on first hearing. My compositions for orchestra, voice, chorus, soloists, and chamber ensembles are lyrical and developed with counter­point and innovative formal structures. The optimistic vigor and stylistic elements of the mid–20th-Century American Symphonic School continue to inspire me. I have recorded five albums with the London Symphony Orches­tra; the latest won the 2018 GRAMMY Award for Best Classical Compendium.”

— Kenneth Fuchs

“Kenneth Fuchs writes tonal orchestral music of great imagination ... He’s a master of orchestral writing ....”

BBC Music Magazine

“While the critical response to Kenneth Fuchs’s works has been exemplary, the truest test remains the overwhelmingly positive reactions of the audiences and the musicians who perform the works. His music communicates powerfully and directly to the listener. He speaks with a unique American voice, supported by a masterful compositional technique and expert orchestration.”
