Composer and educator, Henri Lazarof received his musical training in Europe and the United States. In 1959 he joined the faculty of the University of California, Los Angeles, where he taught composition for several years and was a major force in the dissemination of new music, directing major festivals and conducting and commissioning new works.

Respect for Lazarof’s music has been evidenced not only in the form of his many commissions, but also by various awards, among which are the first prize in the International Competition of Monaco for his Concerto for Viola and Orchestra (1962); the First International Prize of Milan for Structures sonores (1966), in addition to several grants from the Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
