Notes and Editorial Reviews

Soprano Elizabeth Farnum and bassoonist Carolyn Beck join forces with Max Lifchitz and the adventurous North/South Chamber Orchestra in superb renditions of three recently completed listener-friendly works. For the first time on record, these top-notch musicians introduce David Maves’ The Captive (a setting of John Donne’s Lovers’ Infiniteness); Christopher James’ virtuosic neo-romantic Bassoon Concerto; and Lifchitz’s Brightness Aloft celebrating the gradual increase in daylight following the Winter Solstice. Active as a composer, pianist, and conductor, Max Lifchitz began his musical education in his native Mexico City under the tutelage of the Spanish composer Rodolfo Halffter. Upon moving to New York City in 1996 he attended The Read more Juilliard School and Harvard University. His creative endeavors have been supported by grants and fellowships from the ASCAP, Ford; and Guggenheim Foundations; and the National Endowment for the Arts. Read less
