The Barton Workshop is an Amsterdam based ensemble founded in 1989 by composer-trombonist, James Fulkerson. The artistic philosophy of the ensemble is to perform the leading edge of contemporary music today - whether notated or not. They primarily create concerts, usually in collaboration with the composers, which are "composer portraits" giving either an overview or an in-depth representation of a chosen composer's work. 

       They have collaborated with composers such as Alvin Lucier, Christian Wolff, Nicolas Collins, and Frank Denyer and given world and European premieres of works by Galina Ustvolskaya, Henryk Gorecki, James Fulkerson, Jerry Hunt, Frank Denyer, Nicolas Collins and others.
