He has also attended master classes by Jesús López Cobos and José Luis Temes and conducting master classes by maestro Navarro Lara.

As a musicologist, Grundman has led the diffusion of consonant contemporary music and has premiered in Spain works by Vladimir Martynov, Michael Hurd, Gerald Finzi, Kurt Atterberg, Georgs Pelecis, Marjan Mozetich or Giovanni Sollima, among many others. He is co-founder of the Non Profit Music Chamber Orchestra, together with the violinist Ara Malikian. He has collaborated in world premiere recordings of works by Ernesto and Rodolfo Halffter and Julián Bautista and also in the diffusion and rediscovering of the work of Bohemian composer Adalbert Gyrowetz or late composer Robert Kahn with the B3 Classic Trio.

His pieces have been premiered in music halls such as Auditorio Nacional de Música of Madrid, Teatro Nacional of Brasilia, Trinity Cathedral of California, West Valley College Theater or Iglesia La Dolorosa of Quito.
In April 2011, Grundman receives a commission by the International Music Festival of Toledo and writes the sonata for flute and piano Warhol in Springtime, very successfully premiered at the festival. His sonata for violin and piano, What Inspires Poetry, dedicated to the composer Marjan Mozetich, was broadcasted on many American radio stations becoming one of the most broadcasted Spanish pieces in the United States.
The prestigious USA Fanfare Magazine dedicates its cover picture to him in May 2012 and includes an extensive interview defining him as “the composer who lets your feelings flow […]”. In 2013, he recovers the Latin chamber oratorio with his work The Resurrection of Christ for soprano and string quartet, which was premiered at Auditorio of Cibeles Palace in Madrid and that was recorded and broadcasted by Spanish National Television (TVE). This work is also recorded by Brodsky Quartet and Susana Cordón for Chandos Records and it was released on June 2014. In April 2014 it was released also the CD with his complete works for violin and piano by violinist Vicente Cueva and pianist Daniel del Pino.
Presently, he has been designated by the heirs of writer Miguel Delibes and the Spanish literary agency Carmen Balcells to compose the opera to the masterwork of Spanish literature Cinco horas con Mario.
