Max Lifchitz was born in Mexico City in 1948 and has lived in the United States since 1966. He holds degrees in composition from the Juilliard School and Harvard University. His teachers have included Luciano Berio, Leon Kirchner, Bruno Maderna and Darius Milhaud.

The compositional craft of Max Lifchitz is directly conditioned by his wide-ranging musical activity and experience. Both as a pianist and a conductor, he has been performing new music for some twenty years, though he does not neglect the standard repertoire. Performances have taken him to all parts of the United States as well as to Latin America and Europe. He has organized the concert series sponsored by North/South Consonance, Inc., of which he is founder and director. His closeness to performing and to performers infuses all his compositions, which often aim to challenge and expand the players’ capabilities.
