Fredric Lissauer

Fredric Lissauer graduated from The Cleveland Institute of Music in 1969, where he studied composition with Marcel Dick and Donald Erb. His works have been performed by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Myriad, members of the Cleveland Orchestra, and Cleveland State University and CIM faculties. He was recently awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist's Fellowship by merit of his Trio Fantasia Op. 23, for flute, viola and harp.

Mr. Lissauer's very personal and lyrical stylistic voice can be seen to be an outgrowth from those of Schoenberg, Ligeti and Lutoslawski.
