North/South Consonance, Inc. continues its 33rd consecutive season of free-admission concerts on Sunday afternoon April 21 when the internationally acclaimed pianist Max Lifchitz presents a recital featuring recent works by women composers from Europe and the Americas.
The recital will start at 3 PM and will take place at the auditorium of Christ & St. Stephen’s Church (120 West 69th St) in Manhattan.
Mr. Lifchitz – described by the American Record Guide as ” a consummate musician .... one of America’s finest exponents of contemporary piano music” and praised by the NY Times for his "clean, measured and sensitive performances” -- will play music by eight composers representing three generations and eight different soundscapes. All of the works performed will be heard in New York for the first time.
The featured composers are Elizabeth Bell, Katherine Hoover, Nailah Nombeko, Kala Pierson, Hilary Tann, Rain Worthington, Margarita Zelenaia, & Marilyn Ziffrin. They are expected to be present and will introduce their music to the audience.
This concert will be Mr.
Lifchitz’s only New York recital for the current season. He and the
composers are available for interviews and other media events and may be
contacted through the North/South Consonance office at [email protected]
The event is part of the Immigrant Heritage Week Celebration in New York City sponsored by the Mayor's Office.
North/South Consonance’s 2012-13 season is made
possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts
and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; grants from the Arthur
Berger Fund and the Music Performance Trust Funds; as well as contributions by
