The music of Wlad Marhulets has been performed widely by world-class companies such as the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Czech National Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Orchestre National de Lyon, the Sinfonietta Cracovia, the Lithuanian choir Jauna Muzika, Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra, and others. He is the winner of the Susan W. Rose Fund Grant, the Peter D. Faith Prize, and five ASCAP Awards, including the prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award. A full scholarship student during his tenure at the Juilliard School, Wlad Malhulets studied composition exclusively with the Oscar and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Corigliano.
In addition to works for the stage, Marhulets maintains an active career as a screen composer, with credits for films such as Ambition (directed by Bob Shaye), Hitman: Agent 47 (starring Zachary Quinto), Ruby Strangelove Young Witch (directed by Evgeny Ruman), The Giver (starring Meryl Streep), November Man (starring Pierce Brosnan), Orchestra of Exiles (directed by Oscar nominee Josh Aronson), Sabotage (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger), and others.
His klezmer opera The Property was premiered by Lyric Opera of Chicago in the 2014–2015 season to rave reviews. New City Stage remarked: “Marhulets miraculously combines the elements of klezmer, the ‘secular’ side of Jewish music, with the underpinnings of contemporary opera. His use of leitmotif is masterful, and his sense of vocal line, sublime.” More recent premieres include the chamber work Dybbuk by clarinetist David Krakauer and the Pan Ton Quartet at the 28th Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, Poland. Located in Los Angeles, Wlad Malhulets is published by G. Schirmer.
