Thursday, August 4, at 7:00pm. Piano Concert of Max Lifchitz in CLASSICI MODERNI COMPOSITORI EUROPEI: CLAUDE DEBUSSY-MAURICE RAVEL- ARNOLD SCHOENBERG- IGOR STRAVINSKI at The Southampton Culture Center.
The versatile Max Lifchitz is a dramatic figure in America’s musical life. Born in Mexico City in 1948, he has resided in the USA since 1966. A graduate of The Juilliard School and Harvard University, his activities as composer and performer and conductor have established him as a true musical citizien in the world. Max was awarded first prize in the 1976 International Gaudeaumus Competition of Twentieth Century Music held in Holland. Robert Commandy, writing for The San Francisco Chronical, described Max as “a young composer of brilliant imagination and a stunning, ultra-sensitive pianist.” The New York Times music critic Allan Kozinn praised Mr Lifchitz for his “clean, measured and sensitive performances.” Donal Henahan, also writing for The New York Times, stated, “Mr Lifchitz, who is the enterprising director of North/South Consonance, is also an ambidextrous conductor of complex music. His own piece required him to beat intricate polyrhythms- not only fairly simple patterns like 4 with one hand against 3 with the other, but also such metrical puzzles as 3 against 11 or 5 against 13.” Max’s CD album devoted to the piano music of Mexico elicitd the following comment from Fanfare Magazine.” After several listening, North/South Recordings No.1010 is recommended to more than just a specialist audience because of the wide variety of attractive and challenging music that it contains.”

Charles was with Luchino Visconti at the Lido in Venice during the filming. Charles, although born in NYC, is a descendent of a very distinguished German family: the great poet, Joseph Benedict von Eichendorff. Charles writes in Italian, French, English, and sometimes in German.
