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.



This title from the CRI LP back catalog has been carefully transferred from the original master tape, and is now available from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).

We have preserved the original CRI LP catalog number for this title, preceded by the prefix NWCRL, to distinguish previously unavailable back catalog titles from those later reissued by CRI on compact disc.

***Please note that the newly-digitized CRI LP titles are priced at $12.99 (multiples excepted) and are not included in any of the special offers.***
