DAVID S. LEFKOWITZ, a native of New York City, studied music composition at The Eastman School of Music, Cornell University, and University of Pennsylvania, where his principal teachers were Joseph Schwantner, Samuel Adler, George Crumb, and Karel Husa.

    As a composer David S. Lefkowitz has won international acclaim, having works performed in Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Ukraine, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Israel, and Egypt. He has won national and international competitions, including the Fukui Harp Music Awards Competition (twice), and the American Society of Composers, Authors, & Publishers (ASCAP) Grants to Young Composers Competition. In addition, he has won prizes and recognition from the National Association of Composers, USA (NACUSA), the Guild of Temple Musicians, Pacific Composers' Forum, Chicago Civic Orchestra, Washington International Competi.tion, Society for New Music's Brian M. Israel Prize, the ALEA III International Competition, and the Gaudeamus Music Week. He has also been a Meet-The-Composer Composer in Residence.
    Recent commissions include works for James Buswell and the Baroque Camerata of the National Sun Yat-Sen University (Taiwan), Melia Watras of the Corigliano Quartet, 'cellist Elinor Frey and pianist David Fung, violinist Petteri Iivonen, soprano Ursula Kleinecke and Colloquy, harpist Grace Cloutier, quintets for Pacific Serenades and the Synergy Ensemble, the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Cantor Joseph Gole and the Cantor's Assembly, the Harvard Westlake Orchestra, and by the Beijing City Opera Company (China's largest and best Beijing Opera company) to write the music for a thirteen-minute solo dance-drama; the resulting BREIDGING OPERA for small chamber orchestra has been well received by audiences and artists on both sides of the Pacific. He has recordings available or soon to be available on Yarlung (yarlungrecords.com), Fatrock Ink (fatrockink.com/compact-discs-the-debussy-trio.html), Japanese Victor, Yamaha, Albany, Sondala, and Klavier record labels.
     As a theorist Lefkowitz has researched "meta-theoretical" issues such as the process of segmentation (a component of post-tonal analysis) and the internal structure of set-classes, he has written extensively on Schoenberg's piano music, and also has done work on music theory pedagogy, culminating with his textbook Music Theory: Syntax, Function, and Form which is expected to be published soon.
    He is a professor of composition and theory at UCLA, where he is the head of the composition and theory area.
